Study Tips for Using Old Exams (Please read!) • Study for the exam first, from class notes, textbook, online homework, etc. before attempting an old exam for practice. • A key for the exam is not provided. This makes checking your answers (through consulting the text) an additional learning opportunity. • Not every question from an old exam is appropriate as the way the course is taught varies somewhat each semester. For the same reason, there may be questions on this semester’s midterm exam that were not included in the old exam. You are responsible for knowing what was covered in class regardless of the content of this old exam. • The format of this old exam is similar to what you will encounter this semester. The exam will still be multiple choice, for example, and formatted in two columns, etc. In spite of what the old coversheet says, graphing calculators are NOT permitted on this or any exam.
