    You can expect to have one or two of them on the exam.

    Where these trig problems straight forward....like which of the following is equal to cos29....blah. Or were they more difficult, like using the law of cosines twice and applying rules like tan^2x + 1 = sec^2x or whatever....

    u definitely have to know the 6 trig. functions, and relationship between each. for instance: sin a*2 + cos a*2 =1
