I strongly recommend that you try all the questions at the end of each chapter; they are nearly all good ones, at the level that will be typical on the exam. Some exceptions are listed below. In fact I will, as usual, take a few of the exam questions from the end-of-chapter and online questions. However I do not recommend that you spend most of your study time trying to find the answers to these questions: they should be attempted after you have studied, as a self-test, although a quick look at them might be good to give you an idea of how much you understand. End of chapter questions, and excluded sections: Ch.19. Not on exam: Sec. 19.5 Shock Waves and Star Formation R/D All except 14; TF/MC Not 7, 8, 20....
