Tips for Studying for 115b exams -- Start early: the weekend before the exam is a good time. -- Review first material in book and in lecture notes and make sure you understand all the concepts -- Do all problem solving IN WRITING and get the final answer -- First do problems solved in book and in class and make sure you can do them without looking at notes, getting the correct answer. -- Then do as many odd problems as you can, in writing and independently -- Finally do a few even problems and check the answers with me or your friends to gain confidence in doing problems when the answers are not provided. -- Ask questions in class and during office hours
