You are encouraged to also study the third problems set, the course notes and any relevant parts of the text book.

As for the exam, calculators are allowed, rulers are allowed, and the use of pencil as opposed to pen is strongly encouraged. Warning: Many of the answers in the practice exam will have wacky decimal/fraction answers. Do not be discouraged! Understand the problems and how to solve them.
