Algebra Qualifying Exams
The five problem format for the algebra qualifying exam was introduced
in January 1991. All of the exams since then and almost all of the
solution sheets are given below in pdf format. Of course, there is
frequently more than one way to solve a problem, so the answer you find
may differ from the answer we offer. The answers were
prepared, for the most part, by D. S. Passman.
