If there is one thing we can agree upon, it's that nobody likes exams. If there is one thing to think about, it is what is the real purpose of an exam?

Not all exams are made equal, and not all exams test you on the same knowledge or skills. That's why we have different exam formats: multiple choice, written, oral, formative, summative, ongoing, home, open-book. In this episode, Seth, Niklas, and Clay break down some of these exam types and discuss what the real purpose of some of these exams are, and how you can better prepare yourself knowing what the exam is actually testing you on.
