The information listed here is, in general, much broader than most of the questions you’ll find on the exam; that means that the questions on the exam may include details not listed here. Additionally, you will note that some concepts are listed here that we did not cover in lecture; you can refer to your textbook for these concepts. If you can explain and apply each of the concepts and key terms here, you’ll be in good shape for the exam.
