Halifax is the capital of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. Halifax is approximately ten percent of the total land area of Nova Scotia but is a major economic center in Atlantic Canada, with a large concentration of government services and private sector companies. Halifax was a base of operations for the British during the American Revolution and also a destination for Americans loyal to Britain who opposed the Revolution. Halifax's remote location hindered its growth, but World War I brought it back into prominence again as a shipping point for supplies to Europe.

There is one simple method to be more successful at an exam, Asking the professor in advance how many questions to expect can help you to prepare how much time you can allocate to each question. Spend more time on questions that are worth more points. Don’t overthink the easy questions — that will eat up your time. Wear a watch so you don’t have to search for a clock in the room or be tempted to look at your phone. If you are done early, cover up your answers and rework the problems to see if you get the same outcome.
