100 questions in 170 minutes. Multiple choice A-E. Pencil + brain. No calculators. Most numerical constants provided. No equations provided.

20% Classical Mechanics 18% Electricity & magnetism 12% Quantum mechanics 10% Thermo+stat. mech.10% Atomic physics 9% Optics and waves 9% Special topics 6% Special relativity 6% Laboratory methods

Questions test mastery of material from a typical undergraduate curriculum. For the most part the exam draws from Halliday and Resnick level classical, E&M,

Thermo, optics, and waves. Quantum and atomic physics typical of a 3rd semester modern physics course.

The exam is scored in a two step process A raw score is computed as: C questions earn 0 points. There are many combinations which earn the same raw score. For example:

- 1/4 I where C is the number of correct answers and I is the number of incorrect answers. Un-answered (U)

The raw score is then converted to a scaled score. The scaling procedure is complicated and tries to account for bad questions and the relative difficulty of this years exam compared to previous years.

Number of choices eliminated Average points P(correct) P(incorrect) earned by guessing 20% 25% 33% 50% 100% 80% 75% 67% 50% 0% 0.00 0.06 0.17 0.38 1.00

individual question more likely to on hurt than average help

0 1 2 3 4

A good pace to work the exam might be: -t=30 min, n=25 questions -t=60 min, n=50 questions -t=90 min, n=75 questions -t=120 min, n=100 questions -This leaves 50 minutes to work problems you skipped, check work A game plan like this will prevent you from dwelling on difficult problems and not having time to answer easy problems later in the exam. Remember: the easy problems and the difficult problems earn you the same number of points! Work out a book keeping system before hand to mark problems you want to come back to. No time to invent this during the exam.

Problem solving

Sample electricity and magnetism problem

Dont need to solve to get to the correct answer. Check boundary conditions. These dont satisfy boundary conditions x x x x

Problem solving

Two answers make no sense. Guess among remaining three?

correct

Sample problem

Thermodynamics and statistical physics

Since BC is isothermal:

Work done by gas is area under curve. The difference in the areas is roughly:

Remaining topics

Know what material to study Practice working numerical problems efficiently Practice your test taking strategy

Good Luck!
