UCSB Hist 33D, Fall 2002
Final Exam (published Dec. 6, due Dec. 13, 2002, 3pm)
The final is an open book, take-home exam. It should be typed and have a cover sheet with the professor's name. The exam is designed to be completed in 2 hours, not including time it may take you to type it. You should try to keep to the time guideline. In any case, there is a word limit for each answer, as noted in that section. These are maximums; you do not need this many words for full credit!
At the end of each entry you should insert the results of a computer word count (in MS word: highlight/select the text to be counted, then click on Tools: Word Count). Here is an example for this paragraph: [117 words]
The exam is due by 3pm on Friday, December 13, in the History Department
Office, HSSB 4001. There is a box on the counter to the left as you enter
where you can leave things for faculty members. Make sure that your exam has
a cover sheet with my name on it. The office is closed from noon-1pm, and closes
for the day at 4pm. As noted, early submissions are welcome. It would be great
if you could submit them to my office before noon on Monday, Dec. 9.
The exam is worth 30% of the final grade (30 points total).
