Review of the course

 

Example Exam

 

Below you can find recommended exercises for each week. The ones with asterisks will be presented at the exercise sessions. Since the exercises in Edition 8 and Edition 9 of the book slightly differ, I write the sets of exercises separately for Edition 8 and Edition 9. The ones with asterisks are identical for both editions, they just have different numbering. 

Of course you are recommended to do as many exercises (also not listed below) as you have time for.
