Midterm Exam 1 hints and formula sheet

I just posted the formula sheet for the exam at http://fin4335.garven.com/fall2018/formulas_part1.pdf. It is also linked as the first item on the formula sheets page on the course website.  This is identical to the formula sheet which will be attached to the exam booklet.

The exam consists of a total of 4 problems. The first problem is required, and you are also required to work 2 out of the 3 remaining problems on the exam (i.e., select two problems from Problems #2-#4). At your option, you may work all three of Problems #2-#4, in which case I will count the two problems with the highest scores toward your grade on this exam. Each of the graded problems is worth 32 points, so as a “bonus” I’ll add 4 points for including your name on the exam. Thus, the total number of points possible is 100.

Regarding content, the exam is all about stuff that we covered since the beginning of the semester; specifically, risk preferences, expected utility, certainty-equivalent of wealth, risk premiums, and stochastic dominance.
