Old exam sets

Go here (opens new window) for the collection of previous exam sets and suggested solutions. Note that the exam in 2006 was "open book" and therefore slightly harder than the earlier exams. Hence, the exams in 2003, 2004 and 2005 are the most representative for the exam of this course.
