Discrete Mathematics & Probability Theory

I found the course challenging but ended up surviving, going on to head TA for it 3x. Here is a step-by-step guide for you to do the same or better.

Start by reading the tips below.

Cheat Sheets

During lectures, anticipate the next step, live. If you don't attend lecture, at minimum, read course notes -- still with the same goal of anticipation. Then, after lecture, review the crib sheet, and take a quiz with an exam mindset.


Make sure to take practice exams beforehand. Here are additional practice questions to use.

The marks the end of the guide. Best of luck with your final exam! Use the exam tactics we covered above, and take stock of all the "rules" you've collected throughout the semester.

For semester-specific resources, see the Spring 2016 or Fall 2016 pages.
