You must put your perm number on the score sheet and fill in the bubbles associated with it to receive credit for the exam. There are equations on the back sheet that you may need to calculate your answers. You may use a calculator. There is only 1 correct choice for each question, filling in multiple answers will result in no credit given. 1.
