Yes, a blue book is NOT a part of the exam.  All your work and answers will
be put on the exam sheets that we give you at the start of the exam.

Yes, we will provide you with the ASCII table and the LC-3 instruction format

Beyond that we will provide anything else we think you may find useful.
However, we will not provide the book or copies of what I put on the blackboard
in class.  You have three pages to put anything you want on it in your own
handwriting that you feel you may need but do not want to waste time
memorizing.  The three pages can be as large as you want, and the handwriting
can be as small as you want.  BUT it has to be your handwriting.

Hope this helps.

Good luck on the midterm.
