1. Homework Statement

I've never had an exam before in this format. It's 50-min long for Quantum I. It will be mostly short answer with small computations. It's supposed to test our conceptual understanding.

I've been reviewing my notes, making sure I harp on the central ideas of quantum mechanics. But that doesn't seem like enough. I only have a small set of practice questions that the instructor provided. The way the course is taught, we've learned shrodinger eq, commmutator, particle in a box, ect. not entirely only barely using Dirac notation; it will be formily introduced to us following the exam. This is also the first exam. I think it might be the first time he's done it this way too. I've also been reviewing my hw's.

This test is making me nervous...suggestions?

This should be in the Academic Guidance section. But I wouldn't worry about it. If you are studying for the exam using your notes you'll probably do fine. Tests make everyone nervous. That's normal.

It seems to be a pretty standard format for an exam. What format are you used to?
