Great story - I had a great professor back in grad school (advanced probability and statistics) that always gave open book tests. He said that being able to look up a formula or read about its application was not what he was testing. He was testing our ability to know what to do when - to understand how a real life problem could be addressed by what we had learned. His tests were always the hardest and the most rewarding!
