Opmerkingen The book:
The book title is Human Sexuality by Roger R. Hock (2nd Ed, other editions are fine as well). The oral exam will be 45 minutes, allowing you to answer 8 questions (one on each chapter). You have to read 300 pages, approx. 38 pages per chapter.
The book you can get on Amazon, but because it is rather expensive you may find a book for reference at the library. The reading material is very interesting and students from previous years were all positive and excited about the material they worked on.

The process:
Just a week or two before the exam I will send you the learning objectives. I do it this way, so students can already start reading/learning and enjoying the process – and then know what is crucial for the exam. However, I want to emphasize that you can’t leave the reading for the last weeks because there is a lot to read, it is rather complex and the whole idea is to enjoy this learning process. You will also receive a clear structure of the oral exam to know exactly what to expect.
