Various resources for examination study

The following resources contain sample and actual test questions for midterms and finals, with sample solutions for some of the questions. These solutions are samples; they are not necessarily complete, and not everything in every solution is necessary for full credit.

The testbank is the primary resource. It is intended to contain all previous test questions (some of which are no longer relevant), some questions which have not been used yet. There may be some additional information in the past examinations below.
