CS174 Fall 2006Practice Final

To study for the final would suggest you: (1) Know how to do (by heart) all the practice problems. (2) Go over your notes at least three times. Second and third time try to see how much you can remember from the first time. (3) Go over the homework problems. (4) Try to create your own problems similar to the ones I have given and solve them. (5) Skim the relevant sections from the book. (6) If you want to study in groups, at this point you are ready to quiz each other. The practice midterm is below. Here are some facts about the actual final: (a) It is closed book, closed notes. Nothing will be permitted on your desk except your pen (pencil) and test. (b) You should bring photo ID. (c) There will be more than one version of the test. Each version will be of comparable difficulty. (d) It is comprehensive: There will be two problems from the material up to Midterm 1 (one of these will be from Practice Midterm 1); there will be two problems from the material up to Midterm 2 (one of these will be from Practice Midterm 2); the reamining six problems will be on material since Midterm 2 (one of these will be from the Practice Final).
