Test 1 (face to face classes)

With your first test next week, covering chapters 1-4 of your book, you may want to review key areas of the textbook. That said, I will remind you of the following ideas as you begin to study:

  1. Use the chapter objectives to help you better focus your study efforts
  2. Take notes as you read and review; not only does this help you retain information, but also it will help you when you review to sharpen your focus on important ideas
  3. Review a little each day (about 30 minutes) between now and then

The following information is not a study guide, but a key focus area, which will help you better gain insight as to where questions will derive. Keep in mind that anything in the chapter (unless otherwise stated–*ahem* chapter 2) is considered fair game.

Chapter 1

  • Introduction to chapter

Chapter 4

You will also want to review the assignment packet for basic information (focus on pages 1 & 2).
