FINAL  EXAM  REVIEW  GUIDE   GGR  216  Global  Cities   Summer  2012     Final  Exam:  Thursday  7  June,  2-­‐4pm   Location:  EX  310  (Examination  Centre,  255  McCaul  Street)     Your  final  exam  will  consist  of  three  sections:   A) 19  concept  questions,  which  can  be  answered  with  a  one  or  two  word  phrase,  place   name,  or  concept  term;  some  of  these  are  multiple  part  questions  so  there  are  a  total  of   21  possible  answers.   B) 2  regional  maps,  where  you  are  required  to  identify  five  cities  marked  with  an  arrow  on   each  map.   C) 2  short  essay  questions,  selected  from  the  list  below.     There  are  a  total  of  100  possible  marks:   A) Concept  questions:  40  marks  (2  marks  per  correct  answer  unless  indicated  otherwise,   i.e.  multiple-­‐part  answers  are  worth  1  mark  per  correct  answer).   B) Regional  maps:  10  marks  (1  mark  per  correct  answer).   C) Essay  questions:  50  marks  (25  marks  possible  per  answer).     The  final  exam  is  cumulative.    All  chapters  assigned  and  lectures  will  be  covered.    Though  much   of  the  material  on  the  exam  has  been  touched  on  in  lecture,  most  of  the  material  is  covered  in   the  textbook.     A  few  reminders:     1) The  final  exam  will  be  on  Thursday,  June  7  at  2pm.    You  will  have  two  hours  to  complete  the   test.    You  must  be  on  time  at  2pm  for  the  exam.   2) All  answers  will  be  recorded  in  your  exam  booklet.    Do  not  use  the  test  sheet  to  record   answers.    Answers  written  on  the  test  sheet  will  not  be  marked  or  counted  toward  the  exam   mark.       3) You  must  return  the  test  sheet  at  the  end  of  the  exam  period.   4) The  final  exam  is  managed  according  to  the  policies  of  the  Faculty  of  Arts  and  Sciences.    This   means  that:   a. Missing  the  exam  is  subject  to  the  policy  outlined  in  the  course  policies  section  of  the   syllabus.   b. Rules  of  conduct  that  are  strictly  enforced.    No  electronic  devices  may  be  used  or  placed   on  your  desk.    All  electronic  devices  (cell  phones,  mp3  players,  etc.)  will  be  confiscated  if   they  are  on  your  desk  (even  if  you  are  just  using  it  to  keep  track  of  time).   c. You  must  bring  a  university  issued  identification  card  and  place  it  on  your  desk  at  the   beginning  of  the  exam.   d. There  are  a  number  of  other  rules  that  you  may  want  to  familiarize  yourself  with:   http://www.artsci.utoronto.ca/current/undergraduate/exams/rules     A) CONCEPT  QUESTIONS     Concept  questions  will  largely  be  drawn  from  the  course  textbook  (though  some  will  be  drawn   from  lecture  material,  see  below).    I  will  select  place  names,  key  concepts,  and  historical   periods.    Each  correct  answer  will  be  worth  2  marks  unless  otherwise  indicated  in  the  question.     There  are  a  total  of  40  possible  marks  in  this  section.         A  few  suggestions  for  studying:     1) These  are  not  multiple  choice.    You  will  be  asked  a  question  and  will  not  have  a  list  of   potential  answers  to  choose  from.    The  upside  of  this  is  that  because  the  answers  are   not  multiple  choice,  these  questions  tend  to  be  selected  more  straightforwardly  from   the  text.    The  bad  news  is  that  you  cannot  “guess”  your  way  through  the  questions;  you   either  know  the  answer  or  you  do  not.     2) As  you  are  reading  and  studying  for  this  section,  I  suggest  focusing  your  attention  on  the   following:  names  of  the  most  important  cities  and  regions  (your  map  exercise,  if   accurate,  will  help  with  this);  important  legal  acts  or  treaties  (e.g.  Law  of  the  Indies);  and   key  concepts  (e.g.  megacities,  palimpsest,  models  of  urban  form,  etc.).    Any  word  or   phrase  in  bold  or  italic  font  in  the  course  textbook  is  important,  as  are  the  themes  and   titles  of  the  inset  boxes,  sub
