Typo on the Sample First Common Exam
There is a mistake in Exercise 12 of the sample. As it is stated there is no correct answer. Option (d) should be x = -2 (and this is the correct one).

Instructions for the First Common Exam
Please read the Guidelines for the Common Exams, specially the information about Exam Structure. Also check the instructions you will be required to follow during the common exam.
If you have som time a good idea is to print a past common exam and take the exam and time yourself (you will have two hours to complete the exam). When you finish, you can check your work against the solutions.
