Reading this study guide and solving the practice problems is not a sufficient level of studying for this exam. Students should also review the relevant reading material and PowerPoint slides as questions will be asked from those places as well. There are six "Show Your Work" practice problems, but there are only two "Show Your Work" problems on the Final Exam. Exam Specifications 50 Points Total ‐ 20 points multiple choice (10 questions, 2 pts. each) o Done on Carmen using the "Lockdown Browser Lab" o No other internet access is allowed. Those accessing the internet otherwise will be sent to COAM. Please review OSU’s policy on academic misconduct. o Graded automatically on Carmen – your score will not be calculated until after the exam is over. ‐ 30 points – 2 "Show Your Work" problems ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ o All problems will be done in MATLAB and you will create the script files or work from a seed file. Always start your script files by displaying your name, seat number etc. and using close all, clear, clc o Make sure you assign a different name for each PDF file during the exam. o If you test your script file in sections using "%% ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ", save all changes before you hit the "Run Section" button. Calculators are not allowed. The exam is closed book closed notes. No communication with other students is allowed. Please review OSU’s policy on academic misconduct. No use of cell phones.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
