The Review section is your gateway to our library of oral exam type questions. We have filter, sort, and search tools to help you find specific problems in a particular topic. No more aimlessly wading through a laundry list of questions just to find what you want,  jump right to what you need. While going through these problems, please help us make the library better for all users by rating and commenting on the problems. Rating helps in separating good problems from those that need improvement and we will pay close attention to problems that receive low ratings. If these problems have any chance of being resuscitated, we will try to incorporate your comments in the new version. Otherwise, off to the trash bin they will go.

Each question and answer set in our library consists of two files. Each file, either the question or answer, can and usually have multiple slides that you can go through. In the actual exam, you are usually only shown a single question slide. We allow multiple slides to incorporate the possible follow-up questions that can be asked by the examiner. After you go through these question and answer slides, you can also listen to verbal answers to this question submitted by other users. We are a big believer in crowd wisdom, so we would encourage you to also rate these verbal answers (don't worry, we do NOT require users to share their verbal answers and those who generously do can do so anonymously if they prefer). Sharing your verbal answer therefore will not only allow you to practice your answer, it will also allow you to get important feedback on your performance. If you cannot convince your peer, you probably are not going to convince your pitiless examiner! (To be fair to the examiners, most of them are probably not pitiless in real life, but on the exam they are told to probe your knowledge therefore they will be, well, pitiless.) Verbal answers that receive high rating can also help others looking for solid model answers to the question.

 

 

This is the fun part where you get to take the test like the actual one. Go to your office and close the door before you start the exam! During the exam we feed you random problems from our library and time your answer. We organize the exam so that it mimics the dynamics of the actual oral exam environment. Two timers are displayed, one tracking the time spent on each question and a second timer displaying the total time you have used so far in the exam. The number of questions and the total time given to you will be similar to those you will receive in the actual exam. If you have a microphone set up, your voice answer will be recorded into files that you can review after you finish the exam. After completing the exam you will be prompted to review each question, provided with the written model answer and asked to listen to your verbal response and rate your own performance.  By honestly rating your presentation you will be able to determine your weak areas and focus your study. At the end of the exam, you will be given an option to share your answers with other users.
