HD 362 -- Human Bonding Dr. Campa Fall, 2007 PRELIM TWO STUDY GUIDE The second prelim will be given in class on Tuesday, November 13 th , and you will have the entire period to work on it. It will cover lectures from September 27 th through November 8 th , and corresponding assigned readings (see below for details). The exam will contain both multiple-choice and short essay questions, and count for 25% of your course grade.

On November 8 th , some time at the end of class will be reserved for answering any questions you may have about the readings or lecture material. Keep in mind that the graduate TAs are available to help during their weekly walk-in hours (see the syllabus for times and locations) and TakeNote is on reserve at Mann and Uris libraries.
