FINAL EXAMINATION GUIDE
Where is it?
When is it?
9 am to 12 noon, Tuesday, December 18
What will I need?
How big of a deal is this exam?
It's worth 40% of your final grade, which will help many of
you boost your average after the second midterm. Furthermore, anyone who boosts their
grade on the final significantly above their grade on the second midterm (15 points or
more) will be rewarded by having the second midterm count as only 25% of their final
average, and the final as 45%.
NB: IF YOU FAIL THE FINAL, YOU FAIL THE COURSE. NO EXCEPTIONS.
What performance boosters are permissible?
Energy drinks of various kinds (coffee, soda,
Red Bull, Rock Star, etc.), but no anabolic steroids or human growth hormone are
permitted. And please eat your breakfast BEFORE the exam!
Are there review sessions?
The TAs will be having "extra office hours" at which they will
also be conducting reviews. The first is on Monday, December 10, from 2-4 pm, in WAG
101, and the second is on Sunday, December 16, from 2-4 pm, in WAG 101. You will
receive via email a practice essay question to prepare for these extra office hours.
