**I had promised to have the problem set posted on Thursday afteroon, and I did. Blogger then went down for some reason and they erased all of Thursday's new post. Anyway they had said they would restore the posts and they haven't. I apologize, this is kind of terrible timing.
We will over over both tests on Tuesday May 17th
There is some overlap with the homework, but I wanted to give you a complete final so you can get a sense of what they are like. Obviously there are no questions about the readings.
Final Chapters: 5, 6, 10, 14, 15 and readings.
