How many closed book/note exams do you have?

Luckily I have 0, but the other section has 3. No envy on this end.

Contracts and Torts are both closed for me. I consider this a huge plus.

It can really go either way. Some days I wish I had all closed book cause I feel like I can grasp this stuff better than the majority of the class, at least based on conversations I have had. Other days I feel like I would die without an outline, dont really care about the book.

Just one this semester, but in my experience (I'm a 2L) closed-book finals tend to have looser curves. The classes/exams I hate have questions that aren't overly complex + open book = TIGHT curve.

All of mine are open everything except for civ pro, which is open book/closed note. So of course everyone just figures out a way to transfer all of their outlines/notes to the book anyway. :roll:
