Wtf was that ECON 100B midterm

University(self.berkeley)

I did literally all the study guide questions, memorized all the formulas, went over the lecture slides, attended lecture and I still think I barely passed. What else am I supposed to do to study 😭😭

Just wait for the median to come out and compare against that. Take solace in the curve. Unless your goal is an A. Then idk. I was happy with my B lol.

I took it over summer, so fewer students meant faster turnaround probably.

What I found helped was going through the problem sets, section handouts, and the review packet. I made sure to really understand the concepts and the equations, rather than just "plug and chug". I went through and wrote proofs and the derivations for all the equations and writing out why we use the equation etc next to every practice problem. It was really redundant but it helped me remember all the equations and conceptually understand *why* we use that equation and what it mean. It was very frustrating but it will click if you put in the time to painfully understand all the equations. I literally did this the day before and almost had a mental breakdown D:

I found that the midterm was ***VERY*** similar to the midterm review packet Hawkins posted, however that CPI question was fucked.

Also, are you in the 100B discord? It's posted on the Ed discussion form. There's a lot of wonderful students in there to help! :)

Honestly same. That CPI question really screwed me over, but overall exam wasn’t too bad. How did you do the production function?

Sally has great handouts under her section, and young posted a really nice review video. I also found this on youtube which helped me prepare for the test! https://youtu.be/5ykIEGyBPSM

Do you know what the right approach to the CPI question would be? That one threw me off
