Exams should be written in non-erasable ink (no pencil, no white-out) . The one-hour time period will be strictly enforced. No one will be allowed to enter the exam room late or to leave early. An answer key for each exam will be posted after the exam on the Chem 105b web page. Graded exams will be returned to you by your T.A. during your scheduled lab or during your T.A.'s office hours. It is important that you learn your T.A.'s full name and write it on all papers you turn in. If you find a substantial grading error, please follow the procedure on regrading outlined below.
