0510-210.03 Cultural Anthropology Final Exam Questions Fall 2006 Your final exam will consist of my choice of five of the following ten question sets. Each set of questions will be presented on a single sheet of paper with space to write your answers. The format is short answer, one to three sentences, and be sure to write in complete sentences. You are encouraged to prepare your answers as thoroughly as possible ahead of time, but no notes or other resources will be allowed during the exam. Remember to make copious use of examples from lectures, readings, films, and handouts. All of the films that we have seen are available at ETC, in the basement of the Wallace Library. If you’ve missed any, it would be a good idea to go see them.

    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.
