Full Refund if you don't take it.  Just don't show up.  Refund will be given after last test window date of June 11.

Note:  I have decided that my goal with this unit is to give you something that you can use on a Q3 Essay on the AP Test.  I just want you to know it well enough to write a good essay.  I WILL NOT load you up with a bunch of busy work and quizzes if you PROMISE to read/listen to it as I assign, then discuss it with me (a real two-sided conversation).  If we can do this... there will be no busy work or test involved.  Just notes and discussions.
