problems: If your code for one of the problems
works properly, you should get it checked off. There are
points associated with the check off itself.
The only code in the programs should be the code which
is necessary to accomplish the task—points will be deducted if
there is extra stuff that we need to sort through. At the end
of the test (or before), place the code in the ANGEL drop box.
Two important warnings
In order to make sure you are prepared for this exam you should time
yourself while you take two or three of these old tests. If you don't
finish in 75 minutes, you aren't ready. :) Practice at least two exams
starting with the most recent exams given in the course. Timing
yourself is important.
- You are required to have a passing overall exam average to
