The Exit Exam consists of ~40 multiple choice questions (depending on your track) and covers all of your core courses.  The questions are designed to focus on high level concepts and theories that you would likely remember from your classes.  There is no specific way to "prepare" other than to think about your core courses and the main ideas that were covered in each one.

There is no "minimum score" required, but if you score 80% or higher, you are eligible for 2% extra credit to be added to your grade for any Communication course in which you are currently enrolled.
