- Is the exam easier as it is open book? NO it is not. However, open book exams are not here to test factual recall.; greater emphasis may be placed on your ability to understand the techniques in the module, to apply them and to interpret the results. Students often think that they can manage with less preparation for open book exams. This is not true! Prepare for an open book exam as you would for any other, taking care over the notes that you prepare to bring into the exam.
The tables in this section will be used in Chapters 2 and 3 of the course (mainly weeks 8-12).
There will be a mid term examination in Week 7.
