Other Help Resources:

The Slawsky Physics Clinic, in room 1214 of the physics building, offers free homework and study help. Try to work with Ralph Vendemia, who follows our class and is normally there MWF from 10 to 3. I don't know if there is any change to Ralph's schedule during finals week.

If you would like to consider hiring a tutor, the Physics Department's Student Services Office in room 1120 maintains a list of people who offer their services as tutors.
