Midterm exam will be held on **October 18 (Thursday)** in class. Exam will cover Ch 1, Ch 2, Appendix to Ch 2, Ch 3, Appendix to Ch 3, and Ch 18 of the textbook (3rd ed.).

Exam will be 1 hour and 15 minutes long. It will have the following three parts:

Part A: 10 multiple choice questions 1*10 = 10 marks

Part B: 2 Short questions 2*5 = 10 marks

To prepare for the exam I strongly recommend you to work out the optional assignments which are posted on the course website. You should also work out the self-test on-line quizzes which are available in the textbook's website. You should also study the assigned chapters and your class lecture notes carefully.

You will need a pen, pencil, and non-programmable calculator to write this exam. You can draw the diagrams with a pencil. But you must the write your answers to the questions in Part B and Part C of the exam, excluding the diagrams, with a pen. You must write your answers to Part A (MCQ) of the exam with a pencil.

I posted a revised version of the solutions to Assignment 1 (Optional). There were some critical typos in the original version of the solutions. So, you should use this revised version when you work out Assignment 1.

**October 16, 2012**

You can study Section 1.2 and Section 1.3 of Chapter for your own interets. I did NOT discuss it in class. So, you will NOT be tested on these materials. You can exclude Section 1.2 and 1.3 of Chapter 1 from the midterm exam syllabus.
