First Exam, Practice Test #1 Notes: (1) The correct answers to the multiple-choice questions and the short-answer questions are at the end of the exam. (2) The lectures change from year to year. There may be questions on this practice exam about material that was not covered this semester in the lectures or the assigned readings. There will be no questions about this material on the exams you take. By the same token there may be questions that I have covered in lectures or assigned readings for the first time this semester. (3) In class I may mention parallels with current affairs or give you the background behind something in the news. This material may be on the exam, although obviously it cannot be covered on these practice exams. (4) There are also a few questions on the practice second exams and finals that are relevant because the point in the semester when I give the exams changes and because the final is cumulative. (5) The questions are mixed up to create different versions of the exam, so the fact two questions are near each other does not mean that they refer to the same time period. (6) The relative size of the multiple choice and short answer sections may be somewhat different on the exam you take in class. ____________________________ American Economic History Professor Rockoff Version A (Write this on your Scantron) Name _________________________________ Rutgers ID# _____________________________
