Clarification WRT Power

posted Dec 6, 2016, 12:31 PM by Sushant Kumar

There was some confusion wrt to complex power in yesterday's discussion. Just a small clarification:

Practice Final Posted! Winter 2013

posted Dec 3, 2016, 6:44 PM by Aaron Penne

The professor has provided a practice final from Winter 2013, and also the solutions. They are posted on the "Quizzes and Exams" page, and attached to this announcement.

I recommend giving it a shot without the solutions first with a timer, then going back and learning from the solutions.
