Yes, that is my understanding. Our previous tests have been 2 hour in-class sessions. For our final test (not the exam), we were allowed to take it home and work them out through our own methods. Thanks for the time conscious reply!

No offense Zack, but I doubt if getting help from other people is what your professor meant by having you "work them out through our own methods".

Ok, I didn't post these questions to get berated by the school police. I am a person of good character and would not post such a thread full knowing that it was wrong in doing so. "Working them out through our own methods" was simply my phraseology in explaining that it was ok to ask for outside help. So if someone can really help me, I would much appreciate it. Thanks!

Sorry Zack but those are pretty basic questions. If you can't figure these out then you need to hit the books.

What is the point of taking a test if someone else gives you the answers?

Ok, obviously, this thread has become pointless. Yes, I would presume that these are pretty basic questions. Unfortunately, my book is not much a help in determining these questions because these questions have been created by teachers (other than my own), rather than the book's key. Surely even the most *holy* of people here have had books/ situations like this. I came about creating this thread because I was at my wits' end with my take-home test, and perhaps this is why my posts have taken this tone. My history in this forum proves quite the contrary, and I am sorry if I have come off defensive- but quite honestly the responses and beligerent attitudes I have received here have caused me nothing but irk. This will be my last comment in this thread, and I look forward to providing healthy feedback and insight outside of this "After Hours Lounge"- notably my first ever posts in here.

exactly. all of my tests are take home, that doesn't mean I get to ask for help elsewhere, or even use my book/notes sometimes.
