Welcome back to seminar!

Exam Preparation!

Tips for doing well on this exam:

  • DO NOT USE INFORMATION FROM THE INTERNET!
    • Your class lectures, text book, and SI sessions are all you need.
  • Remember to include all parts of each ID!
  • Remember that your IDs are worth 60% of your exam grade, BUT do not neglect your essay question either.
  • Use a writing utensil that will be as comfy as possible.
    • If you want to do well on this exam you will be writing for very close to the allotted exam time.
    • The exam will include plenty of paper for you to write your answers.
  • If an answer is a short answer be sure you know all of the information about that ID or essay question.
  • Prioritize your time!
    • Not all ID terms will be on the exam. If there are two or three you are really struggling with then leave those out and make sure you know the rest. You only have to answer three on the actual exam.
    • Look for IDs that fit well into your essay answers so you are studying smarter and not harder.
  • Not all IDs or essay questions are made for the exam.
  • Do not ask your friends from Costanzo's other classes what is on the exam!
