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....
