Organization of Examination and Samples of Questions that could be made into
Multiple-Choice and True-False Questions
All questions will come from the lectures and the assigned chapters and parts of chapters in the text. The questions will be organized (as shown below) into the same main headings and subheadings used in the Lecture Notes, although some subheadings are different to reflect material covered in the text but not in lectures. Under each heading will be a mix of true-false and multiple-choice questions to be answered on a scantron sheet. For some of the true-false and multiple-choice questions, you also may be asked to explain your answer.
Because the test organization will follow the organization of the lectures, be thoroughly familiar with the material presented in lecture. For textbook readings, focus first on the material most related to lecture, but keep in mind that not all topics listed in your lecture notes were covered in lecture.
The questions that follow are not in the multiple-choice or true-false style, but they are a good sampling of questions that, on the examination, will be worked into that style. If you can answer these questions, you should be well-prepared for the examination. To give you an idea about how they could be worked into multiple-choice or true-false format, a few sample questions are provided (printed in reduced font).
Note that many questions ask for definitions of the vocabulary items listed in each chapter (and defined in the margins and in the glossary), so be sure to study these items along with the others not listed here. Any one of them could be incorporated into a question.
The examination is scheduled for Wednesday, May 2, from 12:45 to 2:45 p.m. As I said about the Midterm Study Guide, if you begin soon and answer just a few questions every day, you will finish in ample time. If you
