General Rules for the Uniform Exams and Final

Check with your instructor to see whether you are allowed
a 3x5 card on exams.

No other notes or books are allowed at the exams. If you bring other
materials for the purpose of last minute study, they must be placed out
of view completely under your seat before the exam begins.

You should have your programmable graphing calculator with you.
Remember to have the angular measure set to radian mode, and to check
the battery level.
Suggested Exam Study Tactics

Look over your old homework assignments, including the individual and
group homework,
and see if you can write solutions to the exercises that caused you the
most trouble without looking at your previous solutions. If there are
certain types of exercises you never figured out or still cannot do, get
help from your instructor, other students, or the
Math Lab.

For each section of the text that will be covered on the exam, write a
paragraph in your own words that describes the main ideas in the section,
why these ideas are important, and how you can use the ideas to solve
problems. (For the final exam, you may wish to do this only for the
sections covered since the second midterm, and read the paragraphs
you wrote when studying for the midterm exams.)

Read through the relevant review sheets
listed below, and make sure you understand
each of the topics and have each of the skills described on those sheets.

Think carefully about what you want to write on your note card (if allowed).
