15.5.5 Practice Exam

  • Practice Exam
  • The practice exam is just a practice. The actual final exam might cover more materials than those shown in the practice exam. That means topics NOT covered in the practice exam MIGHT still appear on the final exam, and topics covered on the practice exam MIGHT not appear on the final exam!

15.5.6 Academic Integrity

In short, don’t cheat. Any violation will be punished as harshly as possible.

15.5.7 Frequently Asked Questions

How many problems are on the exam?

  • This question is irrelevant since each problem could have an arbitrary number of parts. A one problem exam could easily be written to be longer than a ten problem exam.

How long will it take to do the exam?

  • If you are well prepared and manage your time efficiently: Under 180 minutes.
  • If you are ill prepared or manage your time poorly: Over 180 minutes.
  • You should not focus on this. Focus on practicing and being able to do questions of the types you’ve seen on homework. Let me worry about this. And believe me, I worry about this a lot.
