of exam: Feb. 23, 2009 at 10:00h in room 47.2.101.
The duration will be 120 min.
Allowed tools are: Non-programmable electronic calculator, 2 original
hand-written (by your-self) pages, size A4.
This is a closed exam. This
means: You can only apply for the 2nd exam in april (or so), if you
fail in the first exam on Feb. 23 or if you are ill etc.
Please register for the exam early enough (at least one week before the
exam) either on-line or in the "Studiensekretariat" (Mrs. Kurth).
Exchange students do not need to register officially. However, please
send me a notice if you like to participate, so that I can prepare the
respective number of exam copies.
have your student
ID present during the examination!
The results will be published by using the university on-line
For those who have communicated a pseudonym, the results can be found here!
You can inspect your graded examination on March 6, 2009 at 13:00h in
my office room 45.4.204.
