## CS 356 Exams

Each exam is 1 hour and 15 minutes long. Here
are
some examples
of
questions I asked in previous exams. (Note that this is not a
complete exam.
A typical exam has 5-6 problems with each problem consisting of 4-5
parts.)
Both exams are **closed-book**. But you are allowed one page
of notes on
standard 8.5"x11" paper, written or printed on **one side** only. You
can also bring
a calculator for calculations only. Do not use any device to access notes and
formulas stored inside or information online.
**Exam 1** -- March 9, 2016, Wednesday.
Scope of exam 1 - Textbook: chapters 1, 2, and 3; more detailed instructions in
**reading assignments page. (Download revised lecture slides) (Review Notes)**

within the scope of exam 2 depends to a large extent upon what you learned
earlier in the class.
