Examlet 3 (March 14, 2017 - March 17, 2017)

As you may have seen in our class policies, our "examlets" will take place in a computer-based testing facility ("CBTF") in Grainger Library.

You must schedule your test appointment with the Computer-Based Testing Facility at this link. This examlet is now available for scheduling.

Find out more about the testing facility, such as:

  • where it is
  • when to show up
  • what to bring (and not to bring)

The exam will be 110 minutes in length, and it will cover the material of the first four lectures.
