Review Materials Test #3
What is listed here is not expected to be an exhaustive summary, but simply lists many of the high points that you should know for the test; You should also use review questions and problems, self tests, and other materials at the ends of each chapter in the text, as well as quizzes and any assigned homework problems, to assist you in your study.
Anything discussed in the text or lectures is valid material to be included in the tests.
Each test will be multiple choice, consisting of ~25-30 problems, of which ~6-8 will be numerical. Useful information such as equations and numerical constants will be given to you on the test sheets;
You may use a standard scientific or business calculator (make sure it has new batteries), and must bring a #2 pencil and your university ID with you to the test.
Practice tests (old tests from previous semesters of Dr. Lind's AST section, that deal with the same material, and with the test given in the same style as the upcoming test (with their accompanying answer keys), are handed out only to students that come to the test review sessions. It is recommended that this test be used as a true "practice test", and that you look at the answer key only after trying the problems, and then study more carefully the material you missed.
The summary outlines of the lectures (but not the practice tests) will be posted at this site a few days to a week before each test to help you in your study.
