Final Exam Review Guide

Our final exam for World History will be held in Wenger Gym (KW Campus) on Monday, June 7, from 1:30-3:30.  All you will need to bring to the exam are several pencils and pens (you will need a pencil for the Scantron portion of the test).  You may not bring any other items into the test area—no notes or other materials of any kind will be allowed.  If you attempt to use such materials while taking the test (or are found copying from someone else’s exam), you will receive a zero on the exam. 
Your exam will be worth 20% of your grade for the semester.
The exam will consist of:
 Part I: 50 multiple-choice questions (1 point each), drawn comprehensively from material covered in the spring semester.
 Part II: one essay (50 points total), which will be taken from a prepared list of two.
Study all of your materials for the spring semester: notes, handouts, quizzes, and exams.  Starting from Unit 3A and working your way up to Unit 4C would probably make the most sense, especially since the earlier material will be the hardest to remember and thus may take more time for you to process effectively.
Don’t wait until Sunday night to start studying intensively for this exam.  You will prepare much more effectively if you study some of the material each day (starting now!) than if you wait until the last day to cram.
The smartest approach will involve preparing an outline for each of the essay questions, so that you can be ready to provide a cohesive and well-argued essay for the exam. Once you’ve gone through the effort required to produce thorough outlines for these questions, you will find that you’ll remember much more of the information when you review your outlines the day before the test.
