Exam 1 Review
When: Exam 1 starts at 12:05 am Sunday morning June
15th and ends midnight Monday June 16th. Remember that midnight June 16th
is equal to 12:00 am June 17th on CengageNOW. All times are in Central Standard Time.
What: The exam is over Chapters One to Three.
Where: The exam will be on the CengageNOW
Assignments tab. There will be one link
for the multiple choice portion and one for the essay portion.
How much: The exam has twenty-five (25) multiple choice
and one (1) essay questions. The time
limit on the multiple choice portion is seventy (70) minutes. Ten of the multiple choice questions are
conceptual; the other fifteen are quantitative.
The time limit gives an average of one minute per conceptual question
and four minutes per quantitative question.
The time limit on the essay portion is twenty (20)
minutes. I am expecting a four to five
sentence paragraph answer on the essay.
This is a master’s level course and writing skills including grammar and
completeness with conciseness are a must.
You can choose which order to take each part but once you begin a part (essay or
multiple choice) you must finish it (there is no save and return option).
