Exam 2 will be held in our usual room on Friday, December 14, 2012, from 1:00-3:00 p.m.

The second examination will resemble the first one in format. It will be designed to take no more than 75 minutes (although you can have the full 2 hours) and will consist of multiple choice questions, identification questions, a passage to explicate, or some combination of the three in addition to an essay. The first part(s) may include characters or places from the novels, quotations, or some of the terms and ideas discussed in class.

The second exam will cover work completed in the second half of the course; there will not be identification questions on earlier works. However, if you want to discuss characters from earlier novels in your essay, you should feel free to do so.

Your class notes will be the best guide to preparing for this exam.
