Midterm and Final Exam: General Policy

Important Caution: Please keep in mind that the readings, exercises, and course packet materials for this year's Econ 502 may differ in various ways from the materials assigned for Econ 502 in previous years, and these differences may be reflected in differences in the form and content of the exams. The exam study guides and practice exams provided below from past years are for general guidance only.

Indeed, the Econ 502 course topics presented in the second half of the course substantially changed in Fall 2008 relative to previous years. Consequently, to avoid confusion, no practice final exams are presented from years prior to 2008.
