You will have 2 hours and 30 minutes to complete the exam, which will be
composed of 80 multiple-choice questions. Each question will have 4 choices (A,
B, C, or D) with only one correct answer.
In order to write the exam, you must present your valid Concordia University
student identification card to the invigilators. Furthermore, you will only need a
pencil and an eraser to write the exam. Electronic devices such as calculators, cell
phones, and electronic dictionaries cannot be used during the exam.
You are responsible for material from the textbook chapters indicated below,
the PowerPoint slides corresponding to these chapters, and any information covered
in class lectures. Furthermore, if you notice a difference in content between the
course textbook and the PowerPoint slides, the slides will take precedence because
they have been updated to account for some errors or outdated information
contained in the course textbook. Use the PowerPoint slide presentations for each
chapter to be covered on the exam as a template or as your study guide. If there is
any material that you do not understand in the slides, the best course of action is to
consult the course textbook.
