Unformatted text preview: 5.12 Practice Exam #3 Prof. B. Imperiali Exam will be held on Monday April 14th at noon. Notes and calculators will not be allowed in the exam but you will be provided with a periodic table and you may bring use molecular models to use. The exam will cover material from 3/12-4/11. The practice exam key will be posted as a separate file so that you can print up the exam and take it as a “real practice” before you check out the answers.
