or pencil and yourself All assigned readings lectures and class discussion covered since the last exam Please review the policies regarding excused absences from the exam in the syllabus and discuss your absence with me immediately First a few tips 1 N LA If you have missed any class sessions I encourage you to borrow high quality notes from several students in your class The majority of the exam questions will be based on information covered in class lectures and discussions so it is essential that you have very good notes from which to study in order to pass the exam Use the message board to obtain notes from your classmates arrange study groups or study with one another in the board itself Use ash cards to prepare for your exam Use the model ashcard in Ning entitled Sample Flashcard for Exams To prepare your cards follow these directions exactly as follows Make individual ash cards for every artistichistorical period major event artist artistic style term art object etc for which you are responsible When making cards for the art objects quickly sketch the image of the work on one side of the card Sketching helps the brain mentally record the image better than it can a photocopied image for example The sketch should not be elaborate just a stick figure or enough so that you know what the object is and an unusual detail you see in the object to help you differentiate it from others The simpler the better Do not put any other information on the side of the card with your sketch Use the model entitled Sample Flashcard that is posted in Files in Ning On the other side of the card write down all pertinent information to that image ie artist title artistic period medium major formal characteristics important cultural references explanation of the subject matter etc Use only key words for this information and try to arrange the words in bullet points so you can quickly glance at the image and then ip your card over to read the points you listed on the back side without being burdened with full sentences and wordy explanations 39 If you are adventurous enough to try this technique you should have a thick stack of cards by the time you are done and then some If you have utilized high quality notes and your readings to properly prepare the cards and you ve memorized all of the information you ve written on your cards before the exam you will quite likely do VERY well on your exam 4 Lastly contact me via email elissaauerbach gcsuedu if you have any questions or concerns The earlier you contact me the better I can help you EXAM STUDY GUIDE EXAM POLICIES Write
