SL 2 - 4/20/15

Lots of review now. I'll give you a practice exam each day for HW. Try to do it in one or two sittings. Skip matrix problems and if you're short on time, skip the ones that seem straightforward. Markschemes are in the online versions of the problem sets - but I'm not printing them to handout to you. Push yourself before you look! Come to class with questions. This Wed and next we'll do a mock exam in class. See you then,
