The MTH55 FINAL EXAM is scheduled as indicated in the Syllabus

Students are asked to bring to the Final Exam:

  • Scientific Calculator
  • Ruler
  • Pencil & Pen
  • Student Reference CARD = A 3"x5" Flash-Card upon which the student may write ANYTHING that he/she thinks might help him/her do better on the Exam

 

Chabot College Now Offers the Associate in Science in Engineering Degree. See the Program Description for more information on Degree Requirements

Note that for all Exams there will be ASSSIGNED SEATING as described in the Syllabus:

All Exams are CLOSED-Book. There will be three MidTerm exams and a Final exam as indicated on the Schedule. 

  • There will be ASSIGNED SEATING for all exams.
    • On Exam Days the instructor will place the exams on the desks, FACE DOWN, with a student name written on the back of the Exam. Each Student is requested to find the exam with his/her name on it and take that seat withOUT turning over the exam until notified by the instructor.
  • All students are requested to be ON TIME on Exam Days.
