The exam consists of 20 multiple choice questions, and you will have one hour to take the test. Calculators, except for the TI-92 and Voyage 200, are allowed. We will have a limited number of TI-83’s available for you to borrow if you do not have access to a graphing calculator.
You are NOT expected to be able to answer all of the questions!
Each question has a 2 point value for a correct answer and a penalty of ½ point for each wrong answer. There is no reduction for unanswered questions.
If possible, you should practice on some of the questions from previous years’ exams so that you will have a feel for the types of questions that are asked.
