I'm just working through all the odd problems in the exercises that have been assigned in the textbook. The step-up and workshop sessions are good review too! I think the midterm doesn't have a set length yet.

I believe my TA mentioned it was going to be somewhere between 25-30 questions. In terms of studying I did up to question 19 in Sapling and am taking notes from the textbook.
Hi! I've been redoing textbook practice problems and making sure that I understand how to set them up and solve them. I also redid a few of the post module assessments as well to help me with both the math problems and the conceptual topics. I'd suggest rewatching the lectures and making sure you understand the overall concept. From there, maybe read the textbook sections that correspond with those concepts and then if you still have questions, you could attend a workshop or step up session :) . But mainly practice is the most important thing to do in my opinion !!
i've been reviewing my notes and doing the problems listed in the outline! reading over the textbook is also helpful for me to really understand the principles. i'm also working through the quantum modules, sapling questions, and TA review sheets from the past 2 weeks.
I'm not sure about the number of problems in the midterm, but I know how to prep. The best way to prep would be to read from the textbook and do as many practice problems as possible. This will allow you to apply your knowledge and gain practice on how to tackle particular problems. I hope this helped!
I think practice problems will be your best friend, including Sapling, textbook problems, audio-visual module assessments, and UA sessions. Doing this will solidify your understanding of the content conceptually and how to apply it logically. :)
I've been going through the textbook problems listed in outline 1 and 2 and also checking off the bullets if I'm sure I know how to do them. I think that's a good way to make sure you have all the material covered but reviewing notes and doing the sapling problems would also be helpful. I'm not sure how many questions there are going to be but I've heard anywhere from 10-30.
I agree with everyone that practice problems are your best friend! I also wanted to add that I went back through my lecture notes to make a review sheet of conceptual information since the midterm will most likely have a few conceptual problems in addition to the calculation-based problems.
I am trying to solidify my understanding of important concepts for each topic, as well as practicing as many problems as possible, whether it's through sapling homework, textbook problems, audio-visual module assessments, or UA worksheets.
