That Time of Year

It's exam-writing time of year.  As I've done in the past, I'm taking the opportunity of blogging on Prawfs to solicit thoughts/advice/gripes about final exams -- mainly from students/alums, but from professors, too.  Is there anything you hate(d) to see on an exam, or love(d) to see?  Particular fair/unfair ways of testing? If you could tell your prof anything about the exam(s) you've taken or are about to take, what would it be?

As a current law student, I do not like solely MC tests. The problem is they have to be difficult enough to separate the students for the curve. I've been in a class where the highest grade answered 80% of the questions correctly. So based on that exam, no one mastered the material.
