    Future tense

    Hi
    Could you please help me with these two sentences?
    1. I will finish my course tomorrow at 4 o'clock.
    2. I will have finished my course tomorrow at 4 o'clock.
    Which sentence would be right to use and why? Is there any difference in meaning. I received an sms with the second sentence and I just thought to myself whether it would not be easier to use the first sentence instead. Thank you very much for your answer.

    They are both correct. #1 means that you will finish at exactly four o'clock. #2 means that you will finish sometime before four.
