final examination
1/3 of grade

The final exam will be comprehensive and will cover both the readings and the class lectures.  The exam will test your understanding of good experimental design, salient results and designs from previous economics experiments, important pieces of economic theory reviewed in class and some details from the readings.    The exam will consist of around 20 questions and will include both multiple choice and short answer questions. 

The best way to prepare for the exam is to keep up with the readings throughout the quarter.  There is too much material in the course to digest at the very end of the class.  Before the exam I would advise you to review all of the readings and reread the lecture slides in some depth.
