Principles of Accounting 1 Spring 2008 Study Guide for Midterm 1 Test Format: Multiple choice questions (50 @ 5.20 points each). Total possible points are 260. Maximum grade is 250! The extra points are to compensate for any weakness in the main test instrument and misunderstanding in the question wording. Students need to bring their own scantron. Do not mark your scantron until you have selected your FINAL answer. Eraser mar77ks confuse the scantron grading machine. All adverse consequences of eraser marks and mismarks are the student’s responsibility. Bring extra scantrons. You are permitted to use a simple four-function calculator (cell phones are NOT simple four-function calculators). Instructors/exam proctors will check each student’s calculator while distributing the exams. This is a closed book, closed note, and closed neighbor exam. You are NOT permitted to have scratch paper. You are NOT to look around during the exam. You are to keep your scantron sheet covered to the extent possible. You must turn in your exam and scantron with your name, your instructor’s name, and the version letter of the exam on both.
