You will need
- - examination fees;
- - books and writings on philosophy;
- - lecture notes.
Get the exam fees which you will have to interview the teacher. Philosophy is a very broad area of knowledge, so specific topics are brought to the exam can vary depending on the type of course and the views of the teacher.
Find the right literature for training. You will approach any textbook of philosophy for high school. Also useful is the study of the philosophical works themselves, at least in brief or in anthologies. It is desirable to have the lecture notes on the philosophy that you had to visit. In this case, you can use any opinions and own experience of the teacher that will help you to improve your opinion of yourself on the exam.
Start preparing tickets. To do this, spread the remaining before the exam time. For example, allocate two hours to prepare each ticket, leaving one or two days directly before the exam to repeat the entire course.
In the study of the history of philosophy, try to remember not a large number of names, and the names of philosophical schools, different flows and a summary of their concepts. Use the skills of analysis of the material studied. For example, when answering the question about the development of philosophy in antiquity should not merely describe created in the period literature, but also to draw conclusions about specificity of philosophical knowledge in the period of his connection with science and politics.
During the parsing of tickets in certain areas of philosophy such as ontology and epistemology, start your response with a brief history of the development of this discipline. Then describe basic concepts and the current state of philosophical knowledge in this area.
When responding to tickets on the national philosophy, for example, Chinese or Russian, describe not only the characteristics of philosophical knowledge in specific regions, but the reasons for this specificity, cultural, political, religious.
