Examples for examinations - Interactive Practice

1. Person A | Person BA: "Did you already take the history exam?"

B: "Yeah. It was hard. When do you take it?"

A: "I take it tomorrow morning. There is so much material, that I don't know what to emphasize on. What types of questions did you get?"

B: "Mostly on the civil war. You should also study the impact Martin Luther King Jr. had on American society."

A: "How about Abraham Lincoln? Did you get any questions about him?"

B: "I only had 1 question about him. But you might get more. I don't know if he will have the same exam or not."

A: "Hopefully he will use the same exam, cause I'm going to spend most of my time studying the civil war. It is a huge section and that is what he lectured the most on in class."

B: "If you can't study everything, then that is probably the best way to go."

A: "Aright. Thanks for the info. I gotta go to the library now."

B: "Good luck."A: "Thanks. See ya."

A: "I finished my last final this morning."

B: "Lucky bastard. So you're completely done?"

A: "No. I have one more report that is due this Friday. I haven't started it yet, but it shouldn't be too tough."

B: "How many pages do you have to write?"

A: "It's a 10 page paper on habitual behavior for psychology 211."
