Components:

Suggested Strategies:

Instead of looking upon the exam as just another onerous academic assignment, we hope you will view it as an opportunity for critical thinking and reflection (and just plain fun). The best way to "study" for this exam is to participate in the course as fully as possible. This means that you'll keep up with the assigned readings, participate actively in discussions in class, and complete the other course tasks in a professional manner.
