18. Mar 16, 2005 [11:21 AM ] I will be in the Physics Tutorial Center from 6:00 until 8:00 today (Wed). The final will have 6 quiz-question-sized questions and 1 question double that size. There is approximately one question from each chapter. I recommend studying the quizzes and the homework from chapters 6 and 8, first; then the homework from chapter 7; then the chapter summaries; and finally, the homework from the first 5 chapters. Good luck and get lots of sleep. - Chris
