Acct 2102 Midterm 1 Study Guide

Test Format:

* Multiple choice questions (42 @ 6.25 points each). Total possible points are 263. * The extra points are to compensate for any weakness in the main test instrument and misunderstanding in the question wording. * Students need to bring their own scantron. Mark your scantron only when you have selected your FINAL answer: Do not erase! Eraser marks confuse the scantron grading machine. All adverse consequences of eraser marks and mismarks are the student’s responsibility. Bring extra scantrons. * You are permitted to use a simple four-function calculator (cell phones are NOT simple four-function calculators). Instructors/exam proctors will check each student’s calculator while distributing the exams. * This is a closed book, closed note, and closed neighbor exam. You are NOT permitted to have scratch paper. You are NOT to look around during the exam. You are to keep your scantron sheet covered to the extent possible. You must turn in your exam and scantron with your name, your instructor’s name, and the version letter of the exam on both. You will be asked to show a picture id when you turn in your exam and scantron. * You will have 120 minutes to complete the exam. Delays in the timing of the exam can and do occur and you will still be expected to take the exam. * The exam covers Chapters 11 – 12. * Can you work all homework problems and in-class problems without looking at the solutions? This is the main objective of the examination.
