Topics NOT on the final exam
- Anything not covered in the text
- Molecules & Bonding
- Periodic Solids (Kronig-Penney model, effective mass, etc)
- Semiconducting devices
- Anything I bothered to put on an exam
- Anything I bothered to put on a homework set
- When in doubt, the level of depth of the textbook is what you should assume; I tend to include extra material.
- You can bring in 2 sheets, front & back sides, and a calculator.
- I'll provide a compilation formula sheet, largely just the formula sheets from the first two exams pasted together.
- I will probably not finish the formula sheet in time to give you a copy; use those from the first two exams as a guide.
- Do not forget your calculator. Seriously.
- The final is at 8am on Tuesday in our usual room. Do not oversleep. Use the buddy system to wake each other up. Make sure someone else has your cell number just in case.
- The format will be like the other exams, but more so: 10 or 12 problems, you'll have to do 5-6 of them.
- There will be some sample problems, hopefully today. In the mean time: study the homework & exams, and the problems at the end of each section in the book.
- Exam II solutions will be out later this week, the exact date & time is yet unpredictable.
- The final exam grading will take me about 2 days.
