Notes

For each exam call, a written exam of two hours each is required

the final exam is written with six questions related to the topics discussed in the course and published on the bibliography.
The questions provide open response and you can not use material (books, notes) during the test.
The six questions will be assigned to each student so that they can check the knowledge of the different topics discussed in the lesson (for attending students) and in the entire bibliography (for attendants and non-attendants)
Each individual student will be evaluated for the accuracy of preparation, critical analysis capacity, and communicative skills.
Each of the six responses will be evaluated (1/6 of the total score) so as to reach a total judgment.

Any lack of response to one or more questions will be judged negatively as a symptom of incomplete and insufficient preparation.
