Format of the test

I am getting questions about the format of the test. It will be a pretty typical history test, but I gather a lot of you are new to history courses. It will be a written test rather than multiple choice, so you will need a blue book (available in Brady Commons at the bookstore or from the machine). Make sure you can explain and correctly use all the terms on the study sheet, and you will be fine. I am out of town right now, so I think the easiest way to reassure people is to provide a sample test, in the same format, but from a different course of mine. Same type of questions, different material, nothing fancy.

Term Sheet Updated -- all systems go for final

I updated the term sheet for the final and posted the last lecture outline just now. The final exam is in our usual room next Tuesday at 8AM. It is a written exam, so you will need blue books, preferably the 81/2'' x 11'' kind. Post any last questions here.
