In our analysis of the exam, have some of us overlooked that there was:

1. a fairly tight focus on geometry (some algebra, a little logic)
2. no artificial pretend real-world problems?
3. only 2 places where rounding might come into play (but discount 21 since
there was no trap, and 36 was about radical form, and rounding should not
have come up)

There are bad questions, there is over and under-testing of some areas, but
these 3 points? I think they are welcome, overdue changes to how we test. I
wish they would carry through to our other exams.
