Study Guides Exams

Study Guides are ordered by chapter, which may NOT be the chronological order followed in lecture, so please check the class schedule to find out what chapters you have to bring to class or study for every test. If the class schedule changes during the semester, the topics for each test will be announced in the last class right before the exam's day. If you cannot download a study guide or open it in your computer, see the Frequently Asked Questions, which can also be reached from the link available on the right bar of the website
