Review guide for the first exam

The following resources will be helpful to students when preparing for the first exam. Please also consider the draft formula sheet and, if you wish, send me comments or corrections or suggested additions.
  • Material from the spring 2004 version of the course
    There are review problems and answers as well as the first exam itself and answers to that exam. I believe most of the material is quite similar to what we have done this semester, and therefore can be useful to you. Most of the spring 2004 review problems were copied from past exams in this course.
  • Material from this semester's textbook and a few other questions
    Here are review problems whose answers I hope to put on the web when they are sent to me by students. Please send me only plain text e-mail for these solutions!
