STUDY QUESTIONS FOR EXAM #1 (THURS. OCT. 1 IN CLASS 1:30-
2:50)
In addition to the 10 multiple choice questions, requiring about five minutes
to complete, you will be responsible for answering two of the four questions
below. Try not to spend more than 30 minutes on each short essay.
Answers should be written in a legible hand on the exam sheet, in the
space provided. Use the reverse of the page if you need it. Avoid
overgeneralization––that’s why you’re getting the questions in advance.
Direct, factual exposition is all that’s needed. No bluebook is required
either.
(Each short essay counts 40 points; multiple choice questions are 2 points
each, or 20 points total.)
