· There are NO extensions. There are NO exemptions.

· Be sure that you complete your exams using a trusty computer with a trusty connection – NO EXCUSES!!!

· You need to make sure you have the latest Java version and latest browser version, preferably Chrome or Firefox.


· Objective Final Exam (20%) The objective final exam (multiple choice) is a cumulative exam covering all of the material covered this semester. The format of the exam is very similar to the exams you are used to taking. To prepare for the exam, use any notes you have, take a look at the review sections of the content, and listen to corresponding Synchronous Sessions. Revisit your assignments for all units as well as re-read the quiz and test feedback (very useful). See your Course News for more review items.
