NO EXCEPTIONS.You can download the exam in the presence of your proctor when you are ready to take the exam, and then submit your exam answers and the scanned duly signed proctor form in the Assignments area on the course website. If that is not possible for some reason, then you may e-mail the exam and/or the proctor form to me.

    1. Each student must take the exam individually by himself/herself only. Please do not ask for help from anybody to answer any questions in the exam. Do not read or look at other students’ answers to the exam questions. Also do not allow any one to look at your answers to the exam questions.
