Finals Crunch-Time Tips

Posted By Meredith Crawford

By Jason Linstonburgh   A final exam is not the most difficult thing to deal with over a semester.  Most final exams are cumulative and will take one to three hours to complete, which means they will cover all the topics that have been taught, but only a limited number of questions will be asked.
