8 THURSDAY REVIEW for Final Exam
9 FRIDAY REVIEW for Final Exam

Open notebook is deceptively hard:  of course you have the handwritten vocabulary words-- twelve units.  Reading logs for all of the literature we studied.  What could the exam test you on?  Everything and your ability to notice little things--  for example:

Select the best answer--

The writer of the novel the crucible is

a) Author Miller

b) Arthur Miller

c) Earnest Hemmingway

d) None of the above.  (answer is below)

HW STUDY/ PREPARE FOR OPEN NOTEBOOK FINAL EXAM BRING #2 PENCILS THIS IS A TIMED TEST-- IF YOU ARE LATE OR ABSENT WITHOUT A PASS OR LETTER FROM HOME THEN YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO MAKE UP THE MISSED TIME AND A "0" WILL BE AVERAGED INTO YOUR END OF YEAR GRADE!

answer: d) None of the above-- because The Crucible was a play and not a novel. 

So, read all of the answers before you pick one.

Read carefully to see what each question is actually asking.

Go to your notebook as a last resort!  200 questions at three minutes each looking up the answer is 600 minutes or 10 hours: you have 2 hours to take the test. How easy is this?
