14 Points
Use the book and your notes from class to answer the following questions as a review for the World History final
exam. Like all previous reviews, the review does a good job of trimming down the rather large amount of
information we have covered and is a good indication of what you will find on the final. Unlike the other
reviews, this review is worth points in the formative category of your 4 th quarter grade. The final is
comprehensive, meaning that you will be tested on information from the ENTIRE YEAR. These questions will be due on
16 May 2014. Standard late work fees apply (-20% 1 day late, -50% 2 days late, not accepted beyond 2 days late).
You may print this paper out, answer the questions, and turn in this page if you wish. However, you do not
need to do so. You may also answer the questions on a lined sheet of paper and turn in your answers. If you
chose the latter, please make sure to number your responses in correlation to the questions, or you may lose
