ECE 313 Exams
The topics covered in the exams are exactly the ones in the course notes. Exam 1 covers problems, lectures, and reading for problem sets 1-6, which is covered in the notes through Section 2.12. You should know the meanings, forms, means, and variances for the key discrete distributions for all the exams, including the final exam. Exam 2 covers problems, lectures, and reading for problem sets 1-10, with emphasis on problem sets 7-10, which is covered in the notes through Section 4.4 (except for Section 3.5 (Poisson Processes)). You should know the meanings, forms, means, and variances for the key continuous-type distributions for Exam 2 (see the inside back cover of the Course Notes). The final will cover problems, lectures, and reading for all the problem sets, covered in the notes through the end of the notes.
You should take the exams in the exam rooms corresponding to the section you are registered in, not the section you are auditing (if those two do not happen to coincide). Please make sure that you bring your IDs with you, and that you show up at least 15 minutes earlier, in order to avoid last minute problems (such as not being able to find the room).
You may bring one 8.5" by 11" sheet of notes to the midterm exams; and two 8.5" by 11" sheets of notes to the final exam. Both sides of the sheets can be used. The notes can be typed in font size 10 or larger, or written in handwriting of equivalent size or larger. The exams are closed-book and closed-notes otherwise. Electronic devices (calculators, cellphones, pagers, laptops, headphones, etc.) are neither necessary nor permitted.
You can find copies of old midterm exams and final exams by going to the web pages of previous offerings of ECE 313.
