- For papers, review syllabus and blog and make sure you meet all the assignment requirements. Many students lose points becuase they did not follow assignment directions (i.e. APA format, handing in peer-reviewed artcle)
- Exams: I will reserve time to review with you in the class for the exams. With the review, you will need to bring in questions that you would like me to answer. The quality and extensiveness of the review will depend on you!!!
- Practice Tests: I strongly encourage you to give yourself a practice test before taking the exam. Excellent practice questions can be found on MyPsychLab and textbook websites!
- Please make sure you bring a scantron and pencil to the exam!
- Remember: The exam is closed once the first student completes the exam so please be on time!
