Wow, that's kind of ballsy. I always study for open book tests and put little sticky notes in the most important parts for quick reference.

You are showing your stupidity there. Open book ones you need to study for to know where to check in the book for confirmation. Open book means you have a reference not a straight pass. Besides if it was that easy it would be called straight pass final.

Well, if she/he had a more important exam coming up or even on that same day, it would make more sense to study for one that is more difficult or not open book.

Even if Op had their book I suspect they would have failed, only because you would lose a lot of time trying to educate yourself as you're answering.

41, the book is usually very large, not easy to find answers quickly and the exam has a time limit. Not only do you have to study but you also have to try and remember each chapter of the book so you can quickly find references/answers. Most people think it is just as hard and, sometimes, even harder than just an exam with no open book.

When ever I have open book tests (in math methods especially) I find they are harder. This is because you have to apply your knowledge, I always study for open book :)

41, the exams are generally a lot more difficult and marked very strict. You technically have the answers right there, therefore, there should be no error.

You'll forget your textbook if you don't study? I highly doubt that will happen. A lot of times in college when I would bust my ass studying, my professor would surprise us with an open book test. Made me so mad.

That wasn't very smart on your part, at least you learned your lesson, and next time study! What's the point of looking through a book, but not understanding a thing.

Your still supposed to study for open book tests otherwise you usually don't complete it on time because your busy looking things up.

Open book exams are usually made to be more difficult so I don't think having the book would have helped much. Bottom line, you should have studied OP! Learn from this mistake.

I've had one in the past and found it distracting if you don't prepare your textbook with post-its etc. All you are doing is flicking through your book for the whole exam, instead of actually writing.

It might not be straight facts from the textbook though, but their own interpretation and in depth understanding. Studying would have of course been helpful though.

Good assessment of how you did op. you also came here for sympathy, even better... I'm lmao at you even more now! Hahahahahahaha.
