Below are some handy documents along with old quizzes and tests from some previous calculus classes that I have taught at either the University of Alabama in Huntsville, Athens State University, and Longwood University.  These classes may have used different textbooks than us and thus topics and the order of coverage of the topics may not be the same as what we cover this semester!  The bottom line is that these sample quizzes and tests will not be entirely representative of material you will see on your quizzes and tests.  However, I have made them available to you for practice and to help with any quiz/test anxiety you may have.
