Hey guys!

I'm taking a little break from about 4 hours of my last test. It's an open book test on the Early Fathers. You would think it would be fairly easy. Answer the question by looking up the quotes.

NOT!

But I think I'm doing okay so far. I have three days to finish 68 questions. Three days on the honor system.

I got another grade: B+ in Church History. Still waiting for my anthropology grade.

God willing, will be back in seminary in June for year two.

Very exciting!

Yeah, only someone with very little experience with 'take home tests' or 'open book tests' would think they were easy.....my students always ask for 'open book tests' or 'take home tests' and I always tell them 'you don't want that, an open book test would have to be about 1,000 times harder than a closed book test' they never believe that, until I give them one, then they never want another one.

Doing pretty good so far. I have about 40 of the 68 answers. I can see where an open book test is a learning tool. I've had to do a lot of reading, and my brain is absorbing facts.

It is a good learning tool, that is precisely what makes it hard, you really have to know what you are doing.
