Exam 1 Study Guide

in Posts

Exam 1 will cover the class topics from the first 6 weeks of class, up to and including Curves (but not 3D).

The exam covers the topics in the first 11 lectures, the first 6 workbooks (including the Train workbook), and the readings required by the workbooks. The bonus videos are also fair game, but I will not ask questions about GIT on the Exam. (Closures, almost certainly, and the Curves review video is a review of things in the other resources).

This is a rough outline - no promises that it includes everything (any ommission of a topic is not intentional).
