Note: The format for the Qualifying Examinations has changed for the September 2012 Quals and beyond (see the Degree Requirements page for details). The content required to study for these examinations has only changed slightly, though the format has changed noticeably. While the individual problems from the past Qualifying Examinations should still be useful and pertinent to preparing for the Quals, please be aware that a small number of old problems might involve content that is no longer covered by the current syllabi.
