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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
