General, Non-Lecture-Specific Questions

ID #2152

Will we be tested on information from the assigned readings that wasn't discussed in class? In other words, are the required readings just a way to introduce us to the topic of that day's lecture, or are we expected to know everything we read in the book regardless of if it was reviewed in lecture or not?


Well, I've got good news and bad news on that question. The bad news (from the student's perspective) is that if it's part of the assigned readings, it is fair game for the exam. The good news is that on a 50-question exam, I have never included more than 5 questions that come from sections of the readings that I didn't cover during lecture. So you can safely spend the vast majority of your time on the lectures themselves, but there is a "reward" of sorts for doing the readings.
