GS1004 SPOTILA REVIEW SHEET, FINAL EXAM *Final exam is Monday, December 11, 1:05-3:05PM, in Donaldson Brown (GLC) 64. *The final exam is worth 25% of the final grade. Half of the final will consist of material since the last test, Lectures 19-24 (review material below). Half of the final will consist of general review questions (cumulative component). The test will be 80 to 100 multiple choice questions. *These cumulative questions may be based on anything we have learned in this class from the beginning, although they will be very easy. I have provided 10 example questions below; try them, then check your answers (on the last page), and see how you did. If you feel comfortable with these questions, you probably only need to do a quick review of your notes to study for the cumulative component. *The cumulative questions will not be recycled from the previous tests. *The cumulative questions will not include material from specific reading assigned in the previous tests. *Questions of the day; there will be 6 of these, from the last 6 lectures. No other questions of the day from previous exams will be on this test. *Remember, the general reading is a resource; you don't need to master the content from reading that was not covered in class. Many terms occur in the chapters which we didn't cover. However, specific reading is likely to be tested in more detail. Be sure to read the specific reading and pay attention to details, even if not mentioned in class. Note also that there is one self-study chapter, all of which should be considered specific reading.
