There will be 5 tests. The lowest of the test scores will be dropped. There will be ABSOLUTELY
NO make-up tests, no matter how good your reason is for missing the test. (If
you have an excused absence, talk to me BEFORE the test about taking it early). If you
contact me about your problem after the test has taken place or have simply not had time
to study because your best friend just broke up with his girlfriend and you had to spend
all night drinking with him, you clearly have to plan on dropping that test! Dropping the
lowest test score will cover the situation where a test is missed due to illness. REMEMBER!!
if you drop the first test, you must take all remaining tests to have any chance for
a reasonable grade. Tests will be a combination of multiple choice, true-false, and essay
questions. Cheating will be dealt wih very harshly; don't do it!
