EXAM FORMAT The exam consists of roughly 60-75 questions. The format is M/C, True/False, Matching, Ranking, Multiple Response, etc. Roughly HALF of the overall points come from PICTURE/FIGURE-BASED QUESTIONS (taken from the pictures/figures in this review file) and HALF from traditional M/C, True/False, etc. questions. You should definitely focus on these review pictures/figures since I can show you one picture and ask multiple questions about it. You should also focus on MY NOTES as your primary review materials, and NOT go back and re-read the chapters again and again. That would not be the best use of your time.

How are the CW PUZZLES submitted & are they required to complete? For almost all of the chapters, I have a CW puzzle that you can complete. Since Biology is almost like a foreign language for most of you (since you are NON-science majors), if you learn the terminology first, it will help you pull together the concepts much easier. For more information, please see our FAQs folder in MOODLE. I typically collect the CW puzzles on a SINGLE DAY (announced in lecture). If you are turning in more than one, please make sure that they are STAPLED (no paper clips) and your name is CLEARLY written on the front page. I do NOT accept CW puzzles via email, they are ONLY accepted in class on the announced date. As for "how much bonus you will earn for turning these in?", I have no idea. It all depends on what the overall exam average is. And, since I am not a psychic (if I was, I would have hit the Powerball a LONG time ago and living in a mansion on a Caribbean Island sipping margaritas every day...), please do not ask "...how many points will I get for tuning the CW puzzles in" To Pretest or Not Pretest, that is the question... I can not stress enough the importance of taking the pretest. It is essentially a no-penalty run at the real exam. The pretest pulls from the SAME pool of questions as the real exam, has roughly the same number of questions as the real exam and is in the same format as the real exam. If you end up doing not as well on the exam and did NOT take the pretest, you have no one but yourself to start blaming...

Why should I take the pretest? How do I prepare for the Exam? The pretest is basically a sneak peek at the exam. It comes from the same set of questions and I HIGHLY recommend that you take it. It does NOT count towards your grade in BIOL 1001, but it does give you a baseline of how well you understand the material. So, if you get a 10% or 100% on the pretest, it has no bearing on your average in BIOL 1001. The best way to utilize the pretest is to take it and have one day in between before taking your exam. When you are done with the pretest, it will show you which questions you got wrong. It will NOT, however, allow you to print out or make a copy of these missed questions. This is a security measure since the pretest and exam are created from the same pool of questions. You may end up having some or none of the pretest questions on your exam, it is a completely randomized process when you sit to take your exam.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
