Congratulations! You made it to Final Exams!
Exhale! You have already written oodles of essays, conducted research, cited evidence, revised and edited multiple drafts, and practiced hundreds of grammar and language exercises. So...what else could your teacher want?
Formal classroom instruction may be over, but your teacher still needs to "measure" how well you mastered the course skills and concepts you have been practicing. The "tool" used to measure your learning is the final exam. While you might be tempted to relax and let the final exam "happen," don't! Now is the time to get serious about studying. If you have been paying attention in class, doing your assignments regularly, and seeking assistance when needed, you are 50% on your way to earning a respectable score on the final exam. The remaining 50% comes from what you do NOW.
Unlike unit exams, which focus on a recent set of skills or concept, a final exam is comprehensive. It covers a large amount of material. However, it is not exhaustive, and focuses on the most important skills and concepts from each unit.
