My K prof handed out a series of practice questions for his exam. One of the questions contained a possible error that did not render the question inanswerable but completely changed the rationale. He say's that it was an "obvious" error, and that I should have indicated as much in my answer.
d**mn. While I think he's wrong, he's the prof, so as the kids say nowadays, "Whevs."
Have any of your professors indicated what you should do if you encounter an error, be it possible or obvious?
I honestly think that your prof was lying. Most prof don't put errors in their exams. All of my profs say that if, and they stressed IF you think there is an error, bring it up. I bet your prof was embarrassed that you found an error so he made that reply. If I were you, I wouldn't worry about finding errors on your exam along with issue spotting and analysis...that's just ridiculous.
