The final exam will be held on Friday May 11th, 11:30am-2:30pm in 1 Pimentel.
All materials covered in the course are fair game for the final exam.
The exam will be closed notes, books, laptops, and people. However, you may use three one-page (two-sided) cheat sheets of your own design (group design okay but not recommended).
You may also use a basic, non-programmable calculator, which is not required, but which may be helpful. (No TI-86's, iPhones, etc.)
Here is the practice final. We will give two percentage points of extra credit on the final for submitting your solution to the practice final in any of the review lectures, review sessions, or office hours listed below. The last opportunity is on Friday May 4th! We recommend that you first work on the practice final for a 3 hour block on your own (simulating the actual final duration) and then afterwards discuss with fellow cs188 students to further enhance your understanding.
UPDATE: Practice final solution.
