Our **second midterm exam will be next Wednesday (Wed April 17)**. Please continue working on the open WebWork sets, especially the exercises listed below; you should also review the exercises listed below from earlier WebWork sets. **The best preparation for the exam is to write out solutions to the WebWork** **exercises** **listed below**.

Also listed below are some exercises from the MAT1275 Final Review sheet, which is available as a pdf on the Math Department website here, and also on our OpenLab Files. **You can also write out solutions to these Final Exam Review exercises to review for this exam (and to prepare for the final exam!)**

You should also **review your class notes and the Class Recaps** here on OpenLab, since we did most of these WebWork examples in class–see Class Recaps #12-22.

You should also **review the Quiz #3 and Quiz #4 solutions**, which are available on OpenLab Files. You can also **review relevant examples from the textbook**.
