CSE 131 / 501N
Please read this document completely so you can prepare properly for the exam, show up in the right place to take the exam, and turn in our exam without incident. These rules are designed to ensure fairness and to make sure that everybody gets a copy of the exam.
It is probably true that the creation of this sheet is very helpful for you in preparing for the exam. During the exam, the sheet itself may offer comfort and might be useful, but my exams are not designed to test your memorization of material nor any exact syntax in writing code.
Thus, you should spend time creating the sheet, but you will probably find that you don't need to look at it much to take the exam.
If you finish prior to the end of the assigned period, please try to be quiet as you leave your seat and move through the room.
You must have your student ID card with you to take the exam.

If we see you using any banned materials, your exam will be confiscated and you will receive a 0 for the exam.
Neither the proctors nor the instructors are allowed to explain or clarify anything to you during the exam, for the following reasons:
- Students report that they feal uneasy when another student is receiving information they don't receive. It creates an atmosphere of unfairness.
- Conducting such explanations is distracting to students in a room.
- Our exam is given in many rooms at the same time. It's not possible for a clarification to be sent reliably to all rooms.
- It's possible the proctor or instructor might give misleading or wrong information, which then complicates grading.
So, if you are uncertain about a question, what do you do? It's easy: state assumptions you are making about solving the problem and forge ahead.
Seriously, if you have a urgent problem, please catch the attention of a proctor or the instructor, who will come near you to offer help. The proctors have the instructor's cell phone number in case the instructor needs to be involved in addressing your problem.
