There's no joke. If you want your exam booklet back you can get it back by bringing a self-addressed stamped envelope to put it in.

For this exam, which you can circle the answers or actually write your solutions on your exam booklet, there is a benefit to getting it back.

When I took exam 5 I didn't bother because I knew I wouldn't have time to write anything coherent on the exam book before time was up.

Your mileage may vary.

Another strategy is saving your MC answers in your calculator if you don't want to bring the envelope. You won't have all your work of course.

This may be a silly question, but what size envelope? I wasn't aware we could bring one to get the exam back

Enough to fit a bunch of 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper. Coin envelopes work well. Addressed to yourself (I usually put that as the return address as well). Budget for extra weight of the paper when stamping.

I did that last time, I didn't know why I had some of them though. That was the downside to that. Plus I'd like to know now what I did then and did wrongly.

That's the thought anyway.

You should read this if this exam is your first non-prometric exam. Some only applies to exams with free response but a lot of the general information is good.
