Practice Questions for Exam #1. My exams are about 40% True/False and about 60% multiple choice. Below are essentially all of the questions that I have asked since 2000. They give a pretty good idea of what I ask questions about. The format of the questions change over time so don’t try to memorize the questions. Instead, use them to provide a roadmap of the type of information you need to have in your head for the exam. I have not tried to order these questions in any particular way. Instead, I simply cut and pasted from the actual exams. At the very bottom is the formula sheet that will be included with your exam.
