You are required to bring Blue Books for the exam. They are available at the Student Government Office (4th floor, University Center, right above the bookstore) for free. I will collect all your Blue Books and redistribute them before the exam. Also, you will be strictly required to leave all your cell phones and bags (along with all reading materials) in the front of the class. Any kind of academic dishonesty will not be tolerated.
Your midterm will consist of:
A) Objective Questions, including multiple choice questions, fill in the blanks, True/ False questions and short answer questions. (65% of the midterm grade)
B) You will be given two essay questions, from which you will choose one to answer. (35% of the grade)
Use the readings, your class notes and slides to prepare for the test. No external material is required.
