Yale Physics exam papers

  • #1
My QFT professor said he taught graduate QFT at Yale in the Fall of '96 and that the course he is currently teaching us is almost identical to it. If possible, I would be interested in seeing the exam papers. I've googled but that yielded nothing.

Is it possible to view past exam papers from Yale?

Why don't you just ask your professor?

I'd honestly rather just either find them online if it was possible.

Hmm, sounds like cheating to me. Get his old exam papers without his knowledge, so you can maybe luck out and get the same/similar problem on an exam now...

With all due respect, no. His current exams, which he has taught for 12 years, are all extremely similar in the sense that he has a repertoire of about 8 questions and will put four of them on a paper in any given year. By your logic I'm cheating just by looking at those, because he WILL do the same this year.

The reason I don't want to ask him is because I don't find him very approachable.

Anyway, it doesn't matter because they seem to be non-existent. I will just continue doing problems from Peskin and ask him next term.
