1 Dr. Phillips’ Practice Multiple Choice Questions: I suggest you try to answer these questions after studying all of the material. For the answers to the questions, see the document “Practice Multiple Choice Questions with Answers”, also in Dr. Phillips’ Canvas content folder. Tips for taking Multiple Choice exams: 1. Read the question and have an idea of the answer in your mind before looking at the options. 2. Consider ALL answer choices, don’t just pick the first one that seems correct 3. Once you have ruled out an answer choice, cross it out with your pencil—that way, your brain won’t have to hold the same thoughts/decisions/conclusions at once while you consider other answer options 4. If you can only rule out two of the four answer options, you haven’t wasted your time: you now have a 50% chance of guessing correctly, compared to what was a 25% chance. 5. “All of the above” option: if you are reasonably certain that two of the answer options are correct but are uncertain about a third…the third doesn’t matter, go for “all of the above” (if two are correct, then all three must be correct). 6. DO NOT change your answer unless you are 100% sure you MIS-READ the question the first time. Studies show that people are more likely to change a correct answer to an incorrect answer than the reverse! 7. If you don’t recognize an answer option (and you studied), cross it out—it’s not the answer. Thinking 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
