1. Read this material thoroughly if you expect to try for advanced placement and extra
credit which counts towards graduation.
2. Study the topics listed in the attached outline.
3. Work many practice problems listed at the end of the corresponding chapters in
4. Come to the examination rested.
No one can do well on an exam when excessively fatigued. You should therefore try to rest
before taking the exam for credit. If your trip to campus requires travel into the late hours of
the night, or a very early departure form your home, you might be advised to allow for one
nights rest in the Lafayette area before taking the examination. Many students who are
unsuccessful with the examination tell us that failure to take this advice contributed to their
inability to complete the examination successfully. Please consult your advanced credit
schedule or your academic advisor for both the time and place of the examination.
