Final Exam Study Guide

Final Exam Study Guide:
Borger, Spring 2015
Lit/Lang 3

Nearly all of the information related to the final exam can be found on this course website (by scrolling or using the links on the right side of the page).  A majority of the questions from the final will be taken directly from old tests and quizzes which you have in your possession. In effect, you have the questions and answers to the final exam: if you actually study, you can easily get an “A.” Ironically, most students fail because they rely exclusively on memory from four months ago.  Do yourself a favor: study for the final if you are not exempt.
