The final exam is cumulative, and so it will cover all the material for the midterm in addition to what we cover in the second half of the course. The relevant chapters in the textbook are all the ones listed for the midterm and 7, 8, 9 and 11.

The midterm will cover the material from lectures up to 10/15, which constitutes most of the first 6 chapters of the textbook. Here is the revision checklist that should help you get started, and a mock midterm and the solutions. There will be two X-hours dedicated to a review for the midterm (see schedule.)
