NATURE OF THE TEST
The test will consist of definitions, multiple choice, fill in the blank, true-false, and short essay questions. The test is worth 50 points: however there will be an additional 20% extra credit points which can be earned in place of missed points, added to a score of 50, or ignored if you don’t want to do them.
On regular questions, it is ALWAYS better to attempt an answer. No harm if you are already going to miss the question, and occasionally (very occasionally, I’ll admit), you get lucky. This sort of guessing is called a WAG (Wild Angst-laden Guess); every now and then you wag a couple of points you don’t earn, so always give it a shot.
Good luck! (But hard studying beats good luck every time!)
