Examinations - Finding Information

Having a lot of information about tests can help prepare for exams.  The next several questions are geared towards finding specific information.

"Does Professor Giles use old exam questions for his tests?"
"Can I borrow your old exams for Intermediate Accounting?  I want to use the questions to test myself before the real exam."
"Do you know anybody who took Physics 340?  I want to know the types of questions that were asked on the final."
"Do you think I need to study chapter 6 for the mid-term?  It's so boring, and I can't seem to apply it anywhere."
"What topics did the professor cover the most in the final exam?"
"What were the long essay questions on?"
"Do you remember the long essay questions you had on the final?"
"I was thinking about buying the study supplement for the engineering class.  Do you think it will help?"

And of course, you may be required to answer these types of questions, so let's get into answering:

"How many tests did you have to take in your Math class?"
"We had a total of 4 tests in that math class."  Or more simply, '4 tests.'

Answering can be real easy.  The reason I put full sentences is for your practice.  But remember when you really answer, you are not required to put them in full sentences.  I'll try to mix it up so you get a familiar feel answering both long and short ways.

"What was the mid-term like?"
"The mid-term was hard.  If you read all the material, you will still have a hard time because the professor wrote up all the questions in a difficult way."
