QUESTION: Could anyone who had Deman tell me what kind of questions to expect on his final exam for ENGL 208A? He said that it will be easy and based off lectures, but I'm unsure about the types of questions he will be asking. Any help would be appreciated!

  1. 50 questions and he accept one words answers. I've had him for two classes and that was the format for both of them. When I had The Rebel with him, I finished the exam in 25 minutes.

  2. And the questions are typically about general plot points, characters' names and even questions like, "Who wrote "100 Days of Solitude?" There are usually only a couple of questions about theoretical concepts covered in the class (e.g. Repressive vs. Ideological State Apparatuses, Tolkien's "On Faerie Stories,")

    1. Were you trying to refer to "100 Years of Solitude" or is that actually another book playing on the title?

  3. I remember in particular that there was a question about how the hobbits defeat the barrow-wights.

  4. I never took an ENGL course through my undergrad, but there are actually exams that test on plot points more heavily than theory underpinnings?

    1. Sounds worse than high-school English.
