GEL107 Midterm 1 Study Guide Date: August 12 (Wednesday), 2009 Time: 10:00 – 11:00 (during the class hour) Place: Haring 1204 (usual classroom) Coverage: Lectures 1 to 8. DO NOT CHEAT: if you get caught, your case will be reported to the Student Judiciary Affairs. Bring UCD Scantron 2000, a pencil, and an eraser. Please be on time so that you do not disturb other students. Questions will be mainly multiple choice and a few short answer – around 30 questions. There will be only one correct answer. Read the questions and all of the choices carefully. About 80% of the questions will be based on the questions listed at the beginning of each lecture (I call them Lecture Questions). They are usually re-worded. The rest will come from what were discussed in the lectures. No question will be asked about something hidden in the textbook that did not appear in the lectures. The exam will count as 30% of the total grade.
