Final Exam: Thursday May 25


Some quick updates this week:

I’ll be available in my office (Carman 398) next Tuesday afternoon next week (the 23rd). Make an appointment (via email) if you want to stop by. We can also “meet” via Skype/Google Hangouts.
The big news this week are papers is the final exam. The final is on Thursday the 25th from 1:30-3:30 in the usual classroom. Don’t miss it!! It’s logistically difficult to do make-ups and that may not happen before the grade deadline. Note also that I won’t offer make-ups except for very good reasons.

The last class was a formal review session for the final. I won’t post detailed notes for that online or answer e-mails on it since I’ve already spent a lot of time on prep, so please get notes from a classmate who was there if you missed anything. Also don’t forget to fill out the course evaluation survey, which was e-mailed to your Lehman e-mail account. Thanks!

About the final exam …

You’re encouraged to (re)read my guide to final exams, “Zen and the Art of Finals” (PDF) if you haven’t already.

Format is 3 essays around major themes we’ve seen in readings all semester. Refer to the handout of the sample exam and question distributed in class for specifics.

Good luck and see you next week!
