You need to use all your learned knowledge and skills to solve the problems. All the steps should be clearly presented in the solutions. Calculators and/or computers are needed. Exams are testing your fundamental understanding of the subject. Numerical calculation is minimal. No calculators and computers are needed. Tips for Getting an A+ Attend all lectures Concentrate on EM stuff in classroom Learn problem solving skills from your peers; don’t copy their work Ask questions when you have any, not only in classroom, but also awat Participate classroom discussions You Can Get Extra Points!
