You should take that down before someone quotes it.

Yeah, he could use "any resource" in preparing for the exam; the exam itself was closed book. Still not a good thing to post/ask about on TLS, though.

How can a prof honestly expect a closed book take home test? That just seems like bad planning on the prof's part. Though I guess a huge issue spotter and an 8 hour take home might be one way to remedy the honor code issue. No time to cheat; gotta type!

Most 8hr take homes got word limits tho.

Assholes like me would be putting up 16k words. No one wants to read that.

Take home exams suck, anyway. Especially the ones where they give you two weeks to do it. Fuck that shit. I want a takehome that is a three or four hour limit.

This one apparently had a one hour limit, so I don't know what the hell OP was doing wasting time on TLS

The problem is when you have like 3 other exams to study for and the other people (who are doing law school the right way, so screw me, I guess!) have it as their only final and can actually focus on it. My fault and I shouldn't complain, but it's law school so of course I am going to complain and pretend it's not my fault.
