Students should study the first four comprehensive finals.
Be sure to study the exams for the right class.
Remember, wording may be different from what you hear in class or read in the text. Therefore, each question requires careful thought. Memorization will be a grossly insufficient way of preparing for any test or quiz in economics.
Since these are comprehensive finals, you will not be expected to understand all the questions until the end of the semester. Stop when you reach a point where none of the questions cover familiar material. If we have covered the general topic but you still don't understand the question, ask about it in class, stop by my office, or send me an email.
You should understand each question because I will change the wording on several questions!
For the First Quiz, you should practice roughly the first 4 questions from each exam.
For the Second Quiz, you should study questions 5 - 11 from each exam.
For the Third Quiz, you should study questions 12, 13 & 16 - 20 from each exam.
For the Fourth Quiz, you should study questions 21- 28 from each exam.
For the Fifth Quiz, you should study questions 29 - 34 from each exam.
For the Sixth Quiz, you should study ALL of the questions from the spring 1998 final exam. You should understand each question because I will change the wording on several questions!
In addition to reading & understanding their text & class notes, students should review the relevant questions contained on the comprehensive finals from the spring & fall of 1997. The study guides listed below provide a checklist of topics students should master before taking the tests.
MAKEUP EXAMS: All students who plan to take a makeup on the day of the final MUST send me an email. The subject line for the message should say "makeup exam." In your message, you need to tell me your name, SSN, class section, the exam you need to take, and an explanation of why you missed the original.
