Equation sheet limited to twenty equations spanning material from electrostatics to mutual induction. Halliday Resnick chapters 21-31. 2 hours. Seems like some questions depended on you having the equation accessible, which is a matter of chance. Core exams were usually 12 MC and 3-4 free response weighed 40% and 60% respectively. The average was usually in the 50s or 60s for the three core exams. Why the department deviated from this format I can only speculate. At any rate I'm upset because I got a C for the course and thought I performed better. My reason for posting is I'd like to get some feedback from other students or faculty members on the pedagogical value of such a final exam, and possible reasons for it being implemented. Opinions on my situation and personal expositions are welcome.
