1 of 9 Economics 310 Money and Banking Practice Midterm Exam Winter 2008 The actual midterm will involve only 25 multiple choice questions, to be completed in 80 minutes. No calculators, no cell phones, no personal digital media players or any other electronic equipment should be visible or in use during the exam. Each question will score 4 points if correct, 1 point if unanswered and 0 points if incorrect. This means that your final exam score will lie between 0 and 100, but that you can score 25 points simply by turning in a blank exam. It also means that a complete guess will score 4 points with probability ¼ and 0 points with probability ¾. On average, such a guess will score 1 point, which is exactly what you would get if you didn’t bother answering in the first place.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
