ESS101 02A, 02B, 02C Fall 2015 Exam 1 study guide Note: This is pretty comprehensive – naturally I want you to know everything! Keep in mind that the test is 20 questions, multiple choice. Clearly everything on here is not going to be on the test. I have tried to stay away from minutia and jargon, for the most part. But, rock names and minerals are things I think I’ve tended to emphasize. The relationship between tectonics and the formation of rocks is also important. Part I. General, earth-scale questions. What is plate tectonics? Know the three kinds of plate boundaries and the relative plate motion at each type of boundary. Be able to label a cross section of the earth.

What are important properties (color, cleavage, reaction with acid, etc.)? What kinds of rock does each occur in?

    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.
