[ answers in web view ]
The practise questions for the midterm cover the material from ch1-8. The final exam will be comprehensive over the whole semester (ch1-15, excluding 11).
As an aid for your study, here are a collection of questions similar to what might show up on the final exam. The actual exam may be longer or shorter, there may be some material on the exam that is not covered here, and there may be some material here that doesn't show up on the exam.

4. (p.390 #9-85) Business students who have recently completed a computer literacy course at a particular university take a test to assess proficiency with spreadsheet software. The test is intended to ensure that at least 70% of students who take the computer literacy course should pass the test, so the university would declare the pass rate to be less than 70% only if there is strong sample evidence for that. Suppose that in a random sample of 100 business students who have taken the computer literacy course, 63 pass the proficiency test.
1. At α=0.05, what conclusions should the university administrators make regarding the difficulty of the test?
z = -1.53, p = ; fail to reject: no sufficient evidence to show the pass rate is less than 70%.
2. Interpret what a Type-II error would mean in this context.
Saying that there is no sufficient evidence to show the pass rate is below 70%, when in fact the pass rate is below 70% (meaning the test is too hard).
