WS 103: EXAM 3 (FINAL) REVIEW SHEET FALL 2007 A note on the readings in WH, BO, and the course reader: As with the first two exams, I will not be testing you on nuanced or very specific details in the articles, but you should understand the key points of each of the assigned readings. Like the second exam, this exam may have more reading specific questions than the first exam, as I’ve continued to draw on specific concepts in the readings more frequently in lecture than I did earlier in the semester.

We will not set up screenings. Killing Us Softly is available in MadCat, The Pill is available through the Madison Public Library, and Gentle Birth Choices is available through both sources.
