The following are examples of frequently missed questions from the unit exams. The questions are similar in theme to the ones missed however were taken from blackboard and are not exactly worded like the exam questions. They are meant to act as a study guide only. Please do not have the misconception that these questions will be the exact questions on the final. What you should do is to use these questions as a guide and to research not only why the answer is correct but also why the other answers are not correct. Once you have an understanding of the concept you will be able to answer any question on the topic.
