FIRST MIDTERM Monday, April 18th 45 multiple choice questions It will cover lecture notes 1 to 8 and chapters 1, 2, 3 ( what we cover Friday ) , 5 and the prologue. Most questions will come from lectures and associated sections in the text, but some questions will come from parts of the text not covered in lectures ( these wont be too speci±c; instead, they will be more general, testing major concepts ) . You are not responsible for “interesting facts” listed for major psychologists or speci±c details from videos ( these are only meant to reinforce and facilitate understanding of primary concepts ) . Remember to bring your questions to class: questions # 1 - 5. I will select 2 of those questions for you to hand in to be marked. And remember to bring a big pink scantron.
