There'll be - can't remember how many - 50? Five zero.
50 questions on the multiple choice. And you'll have 75 minutes to do it.
So we'll allow for the 10 minutes or 15 minutes to get organized here.
It's not going to be a difficult, you know... Try to fool you or to catch you.
It's going to be pretty straight forward.
I've told you my philosophy about exams during the first class, those of you who remember.
In the past, I didn't used to have an exam because I remember I wasn't happy taking exams as an undergrad.
And you know do not do unto others.
But then, I realize that there was the value to them. Not a value in terms of differentiation, you know, grades and stuff, not that.
The value is that the midterm or final gets you to sit down and synthesize all the material.
So if it's a take home, you look for the answers where you are. You take... you just get part of it.
With the midterm or final, you sit down and you read everything from lesson 1 to lesson 26.
And then that helps you synthesize and hence internalize the material. Because remember what I mentioned time and again:
this class is built around the spiral theory of knowledge,
meaning everything we talked about in lesson 1, in class 1, is related to class 3, is related to class 7, is related to class 24. Everything is interconnected.
And it's when you sit down, you know when I talk about the material, I know, it's going to come three weeks from now and I know the connection
You still don't, but when you sit down and study for the exam, that's when you get to make the connection,
and that's when you really internalize the material at a much higher level.
