Anthropology 152 Exam 2 study guide Spring 2011 Test format: The test will be divided into two sections: multiple choice questions and short answer questions. There will be 30 multiple choice questions and five short answer questions. Focus of the test: The readings will again factor significantly into this test. If you have been doing the readings then this will serve you well, if not I recommend reading as much as you can between now and the exam. The test will also have several questions about the films we watched, primarily what was the focus/message of the films. Areas of importance: This test will be weighted and focus on testing knowledge over memorization. Knowing why an idea is important and its place in the overall structure of anthropology will be emphasized. A strong link will be made between the concepts presented in the reading and the lectures.
