The final exam will be about 30-40% comprehensive/60-70% new material. For the comprehensive part, do NOT memorize specific details, but try to think about the broader concepts. For example, do not memorize all the specifics of every stage of mitosis or meiosis, but think about the main purposes of these processes. Do not memorize when or how much carbon dioxide is produced in cellular respiration, but think about why we undergo cellular respiration. Do not memorize each specific step of translation, but instead understand that translation is the process of building a protein composed of amino acids using the information originally stored in DNA. Several comprehensive questions from a previous final are given here ( answers are right after question #16 on this document ). All comprehensive questions are written by Dr. Thoma. As with the other sample exam questions, these are not all inclusive – not all topics are represented here . Use these questions as a guide, not as your sole means of study. Tips for studying for the comprehensive part of the final are at the end of this document. Also use your midterms and the sample midterms as study tools. 1. Cellular respiration involves a. conversion of carbon dioxide to energy rich molecules such as glucose b. extraction of energy locked up in electrons of energy-rich molecules to produce ATP c. consumption of ATP d. movement of high energy molecules between the nucleus and the cytoplasm e. transportation of oxygen from the tissues to the lungs 2. One purpose of mitosis is to

    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.
