This page will have the information on two Qualifying exams


The material that I will post here will be for reference only, it is always advised that you first go over the qualifying exam syllabus
and make sure that you can cover every single topic and attain a deep understanding of that material. As a graduate student taking a
qualifying exam, you are responsible for mastering everything listed on the exam syllabus even in the case where class time constraints
did not allow for certain topics to be covered by the instructor.

(On a side note)I decided to take my qualifying exams in the following order :
First I took the Numerical Qualifying exam in Spring 2012 : First Qual
Then I took the Applied Math Qualifying exam Fall 2012: Second Qual

For the Methods of Applied Mathematics examination I have included solutions from several students that have made
contributions for these compiled solutions. I also include at the bottom of the column of the M.A.M.Q. the collection
of solutions that were used during the Summer 2012 Review Session by Lead T.A Brian Estervig.

Another source of solutions can be found under the website of Jose de Jesus Martinez.
Here is the link for his own personal solutions Jesus' Solutions
