systematic deviation

Tuesday, November 28, 2006


To reiterate what was said in class:

• You may bring in one sheet of paper to the exam, 8 x 11, written or printed on one side only. I would strongly advise a list of titles, authors, and dates; I would advise against trying to fit everything in.

Format of the exam: a mix of questions, short (true/false, multiple choice, or something similar), shortish (definitions), middling (short answer questions), and longer (essays). In most cases, you will have a choice of questions.

• Make outlines for essay questions; they will help you to write and may earn you some points if you don't finish the question.

• Please bring your uni I.D. Feel free to bring a drink. I.D., drinks, writing implements, and your one sheet of paper are all that will be allowed on the desks.

• The exam is scheduled for Friday Dec. 8 at 9am. You will have three hours, though I doubt you will need all of it.

All the class presentation notes are posted up to and including today's.

Bring any questions or concerns to class on Thursday, post them here in the comments, or contact me directly.

See you Thursday.

How much will each section be worth? are there any specific readings we should be concerned with?

I haven't written the exam yet, but the essays will likely have the most weight. As for readings, be sure you have a good sense of the major (i.e. longer) ones, and at least a clear overview, with some detail, of groups of smaller texts (like sonnets).
