Hi! Trying to clarify whether ALL or just some of the final exam questions will come from the textbook problems on the outlines. I have been hearing different things so I am hoping to clear it up. Thanks!
I heard that some of the questions will come from the final, but I believe most (if not, all) will be derived from the textbook problems. I would recommend working through every single textbook problem and ensuring that you understand how to go about answering it, and I think you will be set for the final exam. Also, don't discount the importance of reading each section in the textbook. If you don't have enough time to thoroughly read it, then at least skim it or read the quick summaries at the bottom of each section.
Doing the textbook problems have been the most helpful thing I've done for each midterm! I've found textbook questions with the exact same values used in the midterms, so I'm pretty sure most of the questions in the final will be based off of textbook questions if not directly taken from the textbook!
I do not believe all the questions would come from the textbook but a good majority will which is why they are encouraging us to look over the textbook problems when studying. Good luck studying!
I think the text book has more relevant questions that will probably show up on the exam. I would say do as many text book problems as you can to ensure you will know how to do them if you encounter them on the final.
Based on the midterms and final we took in 14A, I think it's definitely a good idea to do the textbook problems listed on each outline. Rather than focusing on memorizing specific problems, I suggest doing multiple so that you know how to approach any type of problem that may be thrown at you on the exam.
