Practice Quals

(Note added 10/5/14: For the rest of summer, we met twice each week to take timed practice quals in Deady 208 from 9am - 12 noon, just like the real qual. These practice quals were written by those of us studying Algebra for the summer. If you would like to see these quals, just send me an email and I'd be happy to pass them along.)
