DISCLAIMER: I am providing these questions to you all as a study

DISCLAIMER: I am providing these questions to you all as a study aid. However, this
should not be the only way you study (although it is a good guide and starting
point). We went over the entire book, so anything is fair game  Best way to study?
– Make sure you know the answers to these questions, review all of the PowerPoints
(including the first slide that provides review questions from the previous chapter),
look back at your old application exercises, review the textbook, and get a study
group together.
After reviewing and attempting to answer these questions, please feel free to pose
questions (not “what is the answer” type questions, but “I’m a little confused at the
difference between this concept and that concept because….” type questions; show
me you have actually reviewed what we have already covered and attempted to
understand before posing questions). We will still have a short review session on
Monday, July 14th before your group time.
The final exam is worth 200 pts—it is multiple choice and short answer.
