1 GEL 20 Midterm Study Guide Midterm on Thursday, Feb. 7 will cover material from the first day of class through Tuesday, Feb. 5. About 30-35 multiple choice questions. Bring a scantron 2000 , a pencil and a clean eraser. - Have the scantron filled out with your ID number and name before coming to class. For each question, there will be 4 wrong answers and 1 right answer. (No "best" answer, only a right answer.) To study - focus on the notes and supplement with the readings from the book. 1) Don’t get bogged down in details in the notes. Strive for understanding and how concepts might link with each other. I try to test your understanding of concepts and ideas, not trivial facts, so that you can figure things out later on your own. That said, make sure you understand each of the concepts and terms that we went over. If a term is either underlined, italicized, or in bold in the notes then you should know what it means. Pay attention to any numbers that are provided in the notes, but don't memorize them (unless they are in bold or on the list of key terms). For instance, I don't want you to memorize the thickness of the lithosphere or the ages of specific events on our timeline of earth history or other details like that. But I do want you to memorize specific dates that bound the Precambrian, Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic.

    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.
