This page lists the full calculus exams available on this web-site. In order to keep exams from the same semester together, we have labeled the semesters A, B, C, etc. So exams from the same semester were given sequentially by the same instructor in the same year.

Exam-Taking Tips

Each exam page contains a full exam with detailed solutions. Most of these are actual exams from previous semesters used in college courses. You may use these as practice problems or as practice exams. Here are some suggestions on how to use these to help you prepare for your exams.

- Set aside a chunk of full, uninterrupted time, usually an hour to two, to work each exam.
- Go to a quiet place where you will not be interrupted that duplicates your exam situation as closely as possible.
- Use the same materials that you are allowed in your exam (unless the instructions with these exams are more strict).
- Use your calculator as little as possible except for graphing and checking your calculations.
- Work the entire exam before checking any solutions.
- After checking your work, rework any problems you missed and go to the 17calculus page discussing the material to perfect your skills.
- Work as many practice exams as you have time for. This will give you practice in important techniques, experience in different types of exam problems that you may see on your own exam and help you understand the material better by showing you what you need to study.

IMPORTANT -
Exams can cover only so much material. Instructors will sometimes change exams from one semester to the next to adapt an exam to each class depending on how the class performs during the semester while they are learning the material. So just because you do well (or not) on these practice exams, does not necessarily mean you will do the same on your exam. Your instructor may ask completely different questions from these. That is why working lots of practice problems will prepare you better than working just one or two practice exams.
Calculus is not something that can be learned by reading. You have to work problems on your own and struggle through the material to really know calculus, do well on your exam and be able to use it in the future.

Single Variable Calculus

Single Variable Calculus is usually spread over two semesters. In the first semester, you will usually cover the basics of limits, derivatives and integrals with a few applications. You may cover volumes of revolution using the shell/cylinder and disc/washer methods.

For second semester calculus, you will usually stay with single variable calculus and cover more advanced limits and integrals as well as infinite series. Some instructors wait until this semester to cover volumes of revolution. You may also cover parametrics and conics.

Multi-Variable Calculus

In third semester calculus, you will start learning multi-variable calculus. Topics include vectors, vector functions and vector fields. Notation is one of the biggest hurdles in calculus 3.
