The exam consist of theoretical questions and exercises to be solved and a list of tables will be provided.
A 'test dispensatoire' (non-compulsory) will be organized in the beginning of the class and an evaluation (compulsory) before the regular exam session will be organized at the end of the class. These two forms of evaluation have an equivalent complexity as the exam in the regular exam session and are organized in a similar fashion.
To be allowed to take part in the examination the student has to submit 3 compulsory homeworks (short, 1-2 pages maximum per homework). The homeworks are not graded as they are not part of the evaluation.
Submission of less than 3 homework results in failure of the course!
