The Final Exam is comprehensive and will cover chapters 120. To review chapters
115, refer to the prior reviews for these chapters. This review only covers material from
chapters 1620. The Final Exam will include 1 or 2 problems from each chapter (120).
This practice test is similar to the actual test. The Final Exam will consist of about 30
questions designed to be completed in about 2 hours. This practice test does not cover
every single concept that may be on the actual Final Exam. An answer key is included,
but there are no solutions to the problems. Students need to work out all solutions on
their own.
Select the response that best answers the given statement.
