How to use old tests
First try the labs and review any material you feel that you need to. While
doing this you can prepare your a first draft of your formula sheet.
Next try an old midterm, when you do this try doing it as if it was a real
midterm, in the time alloted with no breaks, no snacks, no books, except your
formula sheet. Note any things that you would have liked on your formula
sheet, and any questions that you are having trouble with.
Once you have done this go back and note the sections that you had trouble
with and concentrate on reviewing these. Update your formula sheet as you go.
Make sure that you can now answer all relevant questions on the old midterm.
Try again with a new old test.

There is a homework assignment for Tutorial 6, but there will be no quiz and
you do not have to hand it in. Note that this tutorial covers material on the test.
