Midterm Practice Exam A few things before you begin! First and foremost, congratulations! You guys all put your heads together to make a pretty phenomenal exam. I was very impressed with the quality of the questions you all created, and I think this is going to be good fodder for practice. I had to remove five of the questions because some of them were too similar to one another. So there are 41 questions in all. The best way to take this exam is to take it after you are done studying all the material and after you’ve completed (and studied) the midterm review packet. Take this test under exam conditions (at a desk, in a quiet space, etc) and time yourself. Since there are only 41 questions and they are all multiple choice (due to our constraints), I’d say to give yourself about 35-40 minutes for taking this practice exam. Also note that there is no answer key provided, purposely. The reason for this is because after you are done with the exam, you should use your study groups to check the answers with one another. If you come to disagreements, use that as an opportunity to reach back into the textbook and the lecture slides. I guarantee that this method will help you tremendously in regard to synthesizing your knowledge and becoming fluent in the material. Good luck. I have plenty of faith in you.
