There will be three (3) exams during the semester with one comprehensive final exam. Each of the exams is worth 40 points, however, only three (3) exam scores will count toward your final grade. Thus, the total maximum points you can receive from your exams is 120 points making the final exam optional ONLY IF you've taken all of the first 3 exams. If you decide to take the Final, the lowest score from among the three previous exams will be dropped. Thus, if you score lower on the Final than in any of the previous exams, then the Final will be ignored. Hence, you cannot hurt yourself if you take the final. Many students typically improve their course grade by taking the Final. All tests are multiple-choice with definitional, analytical, and quantitative problem solving questions.
