The exam will be open book and open notes, and it will cover all of the material in ELEC 226. Since ELEC 226 is strongly dependent on ELEC 225, the final exam will effectively include all of the material that we discussed in ELEC 225 and ELEC 226, but the topics from ELEC 226 will be emphasized.
Study Chapter 13 on circuit analysis in the s-domain. The main idea in Chapter 13 is that a circuit can be transformed into the s-domain, and then all of the circuit analysis methods that we studied in Chapters 1-5 can be applied. The s-domain also provides important insights for system analysis and design through the transfer function, poles, and zeros.
Also, look at Chapter 14 on frequency-selective circuits. We will revisit RL, RC, and RLC circuits, and we will study their transfer functions H(s), poles, and zeros. Then we will relate these quantities to the frequency response H(j omega), and we will gain a new perspective on low-pass, high-pass, and band-bass filters.

The reports for Lab 6 will be due on Tuesday, April 29 by 3:30 PM. As noted on the Lab 6 description, each two-person lab group should submit one report. Be sure to include the following in your report:
