AAS 355/GGS 354
Final Exam--Section One
(on last day of class)

1) As per announcement in class, the final exam has been divided into two parts:
section one will be on the last day of class; and section two will be on exam day (the two sections together are worth 40% of the final grade). Why am I doing this? I will leave that to you to figure out.

2) You will not be permitted to guess answers to questions on material you clearly never studied--penalty points will be assigned for attempting to guess answers. <-- Read this sentence again. If you do not know an answer to a question, number it and move on to the next one.

3) To help you out, questions will be short answer-type, not multiple choice. Therefore, bring a pen. NOTE: Lack of neatness and legibility will carry a penalty.

4) Do not come to the final unprepared--it is better that you stay home because either way you will be setting yourself up to earn an F.

5) If you are unable to access material for this class via your so-called "smart phone" then probably your phone is not that smart. My strong advice: use a laptop or a desktop, or come and see me during my office hours.

6) Bonus points from quizzes are worth 40% of both parts of the final exam considered together.

7) Here's another big break: you can bring handwritten notes (repeat: handwritten notes only) to the exams.
8) Questions will come from some or all of these materials:
  • (a) Slide images on the right --> --> -->

  • (b) The following readings from item 2 of the Syllabus Packet--link is on the class home page in the left column. (Make sure you take brief notes on everything; let me repeat, everything)
