There will be three parts to each exam.
1) A multiple-choice area based on listening examples that will be played more than once during the exam;
2) A multiple-choice
section that is essentially a converted matching section where you will need to match up terms with their definitions;
3) Another multiple-choice area, in this case not based on
actual listening examples.
A very large percentage of the exam’s questions can be found at the website that goes with our textbook: www.mhhe.com/bakan2e under the individual chapter’s “multiple choice exams” and “listening exams” that should serve as extremely good practice for the actual tests.
