SECOND COMMON HOUR EXAM
Monday, Apr. 5, 2010 => <= SIGN HERE NOW: The exam will last from 9:40 — 11:00 pm. Use a #2 pencil to make entries
on the answer sheet. Enter ID information items 25, now, on the
answer sheet before the exam starts... In the section labeled NAME (Last, First, MI.) enter your last name, then
ﬁll in the empty circle for a blank, then enter your ﬁrst name, another
blank, and ﬁnally your middle initial. Under STUDENT # enter your 9digit RUID Number. Enter 124 under COURSE; you may ignore the section number. Under CODE enter the exam code given above. .
During the exam, you may use pencils, a calculator, and one 8.5 x 11 inch
sheet (both sides) with formulas and notes. There are 18 multiplechoice questions on the exam. For each question,
mark only one answer on the answer sheet. There is no deduction of points
for an incorrect answer, so even if you cannot work out the answer to a
question, you should make an educated guess. At the end of the exam,
hand in the answer sheet and this SIGNED cover page. Retain the
exam questions attached for future reference and study. When you are asked to open the exam, make sure that your copy contains
all 18 questions. Raise your hand if this is not the case, and a proctor will
help you. Also raise your hand during the exam if you have a question.
Please have your student ID ready to show to the proctor during the exam.
