Suggestions for the final (CSCE 582, Fall 2003).
(1) Final exam will be cumulative (2) Graduate student presentations will not be a part of the exam (3) Textbook materials to be subject of the exam are: chapters 1 and 2 (all), Section 3.1, Sections 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3, Section 5.7. (4) Other topics that are subjects of the exam include: the stratum method for constructing Bayesian networks (start by choosing an order of the variables,...).
Do as many of the textbook exercises (in the relevant chapters) as you can.
Review the problems in this file (postscript).
Check out the Bayesian networks and influence diagrams in the sites referred to at the useful links site for our course.
