notes, programs, etc.

How to Prepare
- Do the assigned reading.
- Do the exam from the last time I taught computability theory at Lehman:
- Do past exams
from when I taught computability theory at the Graduate Center. The
webpage includes all 4 versions of the exam given, as well as answer keys.
- Make sure you do all the class work that has been
assigned. The problems (or variations of them) make
excellent exam questions.
- Work through all the problem sets. Write-ups of those problems are available on the class Blackboard site.
