Hi everyone

If you would like another practice exam to give to your Alg. 2/Trig
students, paste the web address found below into your browser and choose the
PDF titled "Mock Exam." This is the one that we gave to our students about
a week ago. If you could please let me know whether or not you were able to
retrieve the document, I would appreciate it.

Good luck to all!!
