Exams will cover material presented in lectures and handouts. Although textbook readings will not explicitly be covered on examinations, students are highly encouraged to at least skim this material to provide a better understanding of information from lectures. Furthermore, the textbook should be used as a reference while studying lecture notes and handouts and preparing for problem based learning exercises.
If a legitimate reason (illness, death in family, medical school interview, etc.) prevents a student from taking an exam on the scheduled date, he or she must notify Dr. Yates in advance and pre-arrange an alternate time to take the exam. If arrangements are not made BEFOREHAND, the student will receive a failing grade for the exam.

Cheating/plagiarism will not be tolerated. Students suspected of violating the University of Pittsburgh Policy on Academic Integrity, from the February 1974 Senate Committee on Tenure and Academic Freedom reported to the Senate Council, will be required to participate in the outlined procedural process as initiated by the instructor. A minimum sanction of a zero score for the quiz or exam will be imposed.
