Coming up in the week of 2/24 and 2/26, we will have our first exam.  Class will not meet that week.  This is an oral exam and you can find information on it in the exam guide document.

We’ll discuss this in class this week, too.

You will take your oral exam in my office, B-227-H, at a time you sign up for.  Use this spreadsheet to sign up.  Simply type your name next to the timeslot you want to reserve.

There are a few rules.  Please follow them.

1. Sign up for one spot and one spot only.  If you change your mind, sign up for a new blank timeslot and remove your name from your old one.

2. Don’t steal someone else’s spot by deleting their name and typing yours in instead. If someone else has gotten to the timeslot you wanted before you did, that’s too bad, there are plenty of other timeslots available.  If you really need a specific timeslot, sign up early!

3. Don’t create new timeslots!  If you’re late to the party and you don’t find a timeslot you like, the solution is NOT to randomly create a new timeslot!

4. Don’t delete the breaks!  It’s to everyone’s benefit to have a happier professor grading your oral exams, and losing my built-in breaks will make me less happy.

5. When it comes time for your oral exam, please wait at the bottom of the stairs that lead up to my office.  I’ll come to the top of the stairs and call you.  This is for everyone’s privacy during the exam.  Please try to arrive 5-10 minutes early, but don’t come directly to my office, because someone is probably taking their exam.  Just wait in the hallway and I’ll let you know when we’re ready to go.

Any questions, send me an email.  Happy studying!
