Your exam for Statistics 572 will be different than previous exams.
You can expect that there will be some similar questions where you are preented with R output
and graphics and are asked to do small calculations,
to make interpretations,
and to answer questions.
The questions I will ask will be on topics covered in my lectures, so some old exam questions are not indicative of what I will ask. In particular, I will not ask you to carry out formal goodness of fit tests or outlier tests. You should know about AIC and BIC, Cook's distance and leverage, an alternative description of simple regression, and so on.
