Exam Reviews

    Please note that I am providing practice exams for each exam we have in this class. However, they are sample exams and not guaranteed to be completely like the actual exam you take. (In fact, the actual exams will NOT be exactly like these, nor will the exams be just the practice exam problems with the numbers changed.) They are good practice, but to fully prepare for the exams, you should first re-do the quiz problems, do more homework problems in WebAssign for any topics you feel are still weak AND then do the practice exam after you have finished studying. The practice exam gives you a sense of whether or not you can finish the exam in the prescribed time and whether or not you really have mastered the skills necessary. If you can't finish the practice exam in the time allowed or if you continue to need help while doing these practice exam problems, then do more problems until you can get through this without any further aids. :)
