## Exam Announcements!

The November 23 Exam locations are:

You may take the exam at either location, even if registered for the other course. We expect almost all of you will attend the exam you typically attend for lecture.

 Bret Hanlon. and Bret Larget are the professors for Statistics 571 in Fall 2010. We share a common course syllabus, will work from the same lecture notes, give common homework assignments, and give common examinations. We will strive to cover the same topics at nearly the same pace. Students are free to attend the alternative lecture when desired.
