Textbook Outline - Exam II The second exam is scheduled for Thursday, March 10. This outline is meant to help guide you in studying for the exam, but is not necessarily inclusive. Please read and study the chapters carefully, revisit the lecture slides and notes, including any information provided on Canvas, or notes you may have taken in class, from guest speakers. You can use this guide to test yourself after studying the material. Textbook chapters 14, 4, 7, & 8, as well as information from The House I Live In , will be covered on the exam. The exam is 50 multiple-choice questions. Overall, it will be helpful to know definitions of terms listed in your textbook, the context in which these words fit, general ideas that were presented in the lecture slides and in the lecture content (i.e., things myself, other students, or a guest said; points that were made based on comments; additional information that I presented verbally that may not have been listed on the slides), as well as examples and ideas from the other required materials I provided on Canvas (e.g., other readings, audio/visual material). Supplemental material presented on Canvas will not be tested over. These materials are for you to learn more about things in which you need further clarification or in which you may have a vested personal interest.
