The first exam will be held in October (date TBA). There will be an in-class
part and a take-home part which involves constructing a spreadsheet.
Notes are allowed for the in-class part as long as they are in your
handwriting. There are sample questions
for the exam. (Most of the exam questions will be easier than
the hardest sample questions, so don't be scared). A class in October will be an exam review.
