This collection of exercises proposes a relevant choice of the written tests assigned to the Information Engineering Courses of General Physics in the past Academic Years. An accurate selection of the problems has been done. They have been organised by item with the addition of a largely commented solution with the purpose to provide students with an advanced tool for the preparation for the written part of the examination. Every item is gradually introduced; but a sufficiently deep theoretical knowledge of the matter of study is anyway required in order to correctly understand the presented situations. The proposed problems are the ideal complement to the exercises solved by a Professor while lecturing or the ones offered in theory textbooks as worked out examples or problems to be solved.
