A short overview of microeconomics will be followed by some problem solving. Previous Exams : You will find four of my previous mid-terms (Fall 05, Spring 06, Fall 06 and Fall 07) attached. Your mid-term exam is likely to follow a similar format. It is also possible that not all of the material covered in previous exams has been covered this term.
