Preparation materials for Exam 2 have been posted in the Exams section. Do not be thrown by the length of the sample exams -- those tests were designed for an hour and a half exam time or longer. So your exam will be shorter (because you only have an hour and fifteen minutes), but do not assume anything about how much shorter.

There will be a quiz every Wednesday in your lab section. The quiz will usually cover the previous week's material. The first Wednesday (January 28) will have a quiz to remind you of high school algebra: properties of exponents, log operations and factoring/multiplying polynomials. There are reminders of these properties in the back cover of the Epp textbook.
