Exam Preparation
In the past several years, Physics 101 exams have shifted toward a more even split of conceptual and calculation questions. The practice problems in the exams below are more representative of the calculation questions you will encounter on your hour exams. For review of conceptual questions, we recommend that you focus on checkpoint questions, homework questions, and the main points identified in lecture for guidance on what to study.
