**Re:** Spring 2008 Final Exam

In addition to the
final exam which your instructor will give you during regular class time, you
must take the Math COMPASS test. It will
count as 5% of your Final Exam grade, and you will have to take it outside of
your regular class time. To take this
test, please go to the Assessment Center, Room L912, (on the basement
level). You can take the test any time
between Thursday, November 20 and Saturday, December 6, as
follows. (Note: last semester's times were different.)

**Monday to Thursday 9:00 to 5:00****Friday 9:00 to 2:00****Saturday 9:00 to 1:00**

**Sunday: CLOSED**

**The ending time each day represents the time that the
last exam will be given.**

- The
Assessment Center
**will be closed**on Thursday, November 27, Friday, November 28, and Saturday, November 29.

You do not need to
pre-register. **Present your student I.D. or state driver's
license** at the Assessment
Center. COMPASS results will be sent to
your instructor by e-mail.

**You may use a
calculator on the COMPASS test, but not a graphing calculator.** If
you do not bring a calculator with you, there are calculator functions on the
computer which you may use for the test.

We encourage you to come during the first week to avoid long lines and a long wait.

Please be aware that
the COMPASS test may give you questions that you may not have seen in your
current math class. This is to be
expected, because it is designed as a placement test. You are not expected to get such questions correct.

Finally, to assist
you in your studying, the math department has prepared review questions which
you can find on the Web as follows.
