Unformatted text preview: HD 362 Human Bonding Dr. Campa Fall, 2007 ST U DY GU I DE FOR TH E FI N AL The final exam for this course will be given on Thursday December 13th , at 2:00 pm, in Barton Hall (center and east). For the most part, it will cover material you've already been tested on. Exceptions include lectures from November 15th through November 29th , plus the readings listed below. In preparing, you are advised to review previous study guides and prelims. On the study guides for the prelims, you were instructed to focus on specific issues and sections in the assigned readings. Those guides apply to the final in the sense that anything from the readings that you did not have to know for the prelims you are not expected to know for the final. However, you should not assume that something included in an earlier study guide that was not addressed on the first or second prelim will not be covered on the final exam. The format of the final will be similar to that of the prelims--i.e., a mix of multiple choice and essay questions. The major differences between prelims and the final are: 1) The final is cumulative . It will cover lectures and associated readings from August 28th through November 29th . 2) The final will contain more questions than the prelims and count for twice as much of your course grade. You'll also have twice as long to work on it. 3) The essays on the final will be more integrative . On the prelims, it was possible to skip over issues/topics/theories that perhaps you didn't know as well. It won't be as easy to do that on the final because the essays are more integrative. As always, plan to arrive early and bring a pencil or two and a pen. Also, feel free to ask questions during the exam. Best of luck! Drigotas & Barta: The authors describe various approaches to studying infidelity. Focus your review on three sections: the descriptive approach, the normative approach, and the investment-model approach. Gottman & Levenson: Everything you need to know from this article was covered in lecture. Fincham: Everything you need to know from this article was covered in lecture. Amato & Booth: Because we didn't get a chance to go over the complicated statistical models in class, no exam questions will be based on this article. Uchino et al.: You can skip Figure 1, but otherwise be familiar with all parts of their model of how social support may influence physical health outcomes, and the related evidence. Cacioppo et al.: The authors review five social neurobehavioral mechanisms that may account for the association of loneliness with morbidity and mortality. Focus your review on the following three: evolutionary fitness, medical decision making, and health behaviors. Hofer: Everything you need to know from this article will be covered in lecture. Baumeister & Leary: The authors argue that the desire for interpersonal attachments is a fundamental human motivation. Be familiar with their criteria for whether a particular drive qualifies as fundamental. -------------------------------------Note: Sample questions are not provided because final exams are not released. ...
