The exam will cover all course materials from the semester, including all lecture materials up to and including the last lectures ofMonday & Tuesday, December 8 th & 9 th Material will be covered on the exam in a manner proportional to time spent on it in lecture - thus, the final will NOT be primarily based on material covered since the second hour exam. In the P&R text, you are responsible for Chapters 1-17 (with assigned appendices), EXCEPT for the following sections: 5.4, 5.5, 11.5, 11.6, Mixed Strategies (part of 13.3),13.8, 15.5, 15.8, and 15.9. Readings from the course conference are also fair game, and reading questions will again resemble those from problem sets - namely, asking you to apply some part ofa reading to a concept from the course. The exam will consist of 135 minutes ofquestions, for which you'll have the full 150 minutes of scheduled exam time. The first 45 minutes of the exam will be 30 multiple-choice questions, followed by 90 minutes ofproblems and questions to be completed in bluebooks. Books, notes, articles, and especially calculators will NOT be allowed on this exam. Good luck!
