It's All About Perception

Let's say that you had a calculus exam on Wednesday. Furthermore, let's assume that you missed the first calculus exam beacause you overslept. (Fortunately, in this hypothetical situation your calculus class has a very liberal policy for dealing with missed exams because your instructor is not interested in being the Excuse Police.)

Would you at 3am on Wednesday (a mere 10 hours or so before your calculus exam) email your instructor to ask her what material the exam covers?
