Here are all the quizzes, the midterm and the final from fall '98. They should give you a good idea of the type of questions asked. These are all Microsoft Word documents.
There are a few differences though. For example, this semester we will be covering the chapters in a different order. Fall '98 the order was chapter 5, 2, 3, 7, 1. This semester the order will be chapter 5, 7, 2, 3, 1. Also, these are quizzes, which are slightly shorter than the three hour tests that we will have this semester. The midterm and final from 98 are multiple choice. Although there may be some multiple choice questions on your hour test, not all of the questions will be multiple choice as in 98.
There is also a file with the answers to all the tests. However, the key for the practice final has an error on it. On #5, there is no part C, and the answer to part B is something like $1004.94.
As you study for tests, and when you make up your sheet(s) of notes, remember that there are vocabulary and formula list at the ends of all the chapters.
The postings on this site have all been tested and all work. If you have any difficulty getting material off this site, you can try any of the following:
1. See if someone in your study group was able to print the file you want and make a photocopy of it.
2. Try using one of the lab computers in case the problem is with how your own computer is configured.
3. Using Explorer, right click on the link, select "save target as", then save the file to your home computer. You should be able to open and print it from there.
4. Contact Cynthia Kelley at 654-2756. She is the person for website trouble shooting.
