INSTRUCTIONS (Please Read!) (1) Please fill in the required information (A) on the cover of this exam and (B) on the scantron, as indicated on the cover page! (2) In Section II, if you run out of time and cannot complete an item, leave a clear computation without actually computing the answer. You will get full credit. For example, if the answer is found as follows: $[(1000/2 + 300) * 1.50] = $1,200, then writing $[(1000/2 + 300) * 1.50] without computing the final answer will get you full credit. This policy will hold for any other quiz OR EXAM in this course but NOT for Section I (multiple choice questions) . (3) Some tables will be found on the last page of the exam. Please use all the digits as given in the table. You may NOT use any other tables of your own. (4) We will answer procedural questions during the quiz or exam, but no questions related to any problem-related confusion. If you are confused or have any doubts, make the most reasonable assumption you can, and write your assumption down for us to see. If the confusion seems legitimate, we will consider it in grading. (5) Please pace yourself. Do not obsess over any particular item with which you are having a problem. Please move on and come back to troublesome items later, if you can.
