Study Guide 1For Final, PolS 375, International Relations, Section 1, Tues-Th. 8-9:15 Professor Jonathan Graubart, Spring, 2011 Final will be held in class (Engineering 423) on Thursday, May 19, 8-10 am. As is the class policy, no make-ups are permitted unless there are documented emergencies or official exceptions granted by San Diego State University. If I do allow you to take a make-up exam, the exam will be more difficult, in terms of fewer choices on the short answers (this is unavoidable as I need to write a new exam). Format : The exam is broken up into two parts. The first part consists of short questions. You will be asked to answer 10 out of 15. Each short question is worth 2 points. You should allot roughly 30 minutes to this part. The second part consists of a long essay. It is worth 40 points. You should allot the remainder of the exam (90 minutes) to this part. The exam will be Closed Book . Anyone who is caught during the exam collaborating with other students or consulting readings or notes will receive a failure for the entire course and be reported to the Center For Students’ Rights and Responsibilities (Sorry for the harsh language but I include this information to discourage any temptation). Be sure to bring your own bluebook (bring 2 just in case). I.

For questions from readings, base your answer on how the item was explained in the readings. When you are asked to list a specific number of items you just have to list them. You don’t have to explain each item. Sometimes, you are only asked to provide a partial list rather than the entire list. A. The following are possible questions from the assigned readings.
