Hello everybody. After getting back my last math midterm I feel like a damn orangutan who's one wooden box short of getting that dangling banana. My question is, what are your strategies for acing your math midterms? I understand most of the material and I do study fastidiously but somehow that I manage to screw up on some questions by way of really dumb mistakes. As well, there's always the dreaded "not covered in lecture or mention on the homework assignments and practice midterms" questions that involve some novel application of the concepts we learned on the midterms too. So what are some of your innovative study and reviewing strategies? As well, what are some of the secrets to flawless performance on test? Oh yeah, mynext midterm's probably gonna be on Chain rule, directional derivatives, gradient, Max/Min and Lagrange's Method. Thanks all for their wisdom. Peace.
