44 Multiple Choice Questions (please note that these multiple choice questions are much more difficult than those asked on quizzes). These questions will test your depth and complexity of knowledge, not merely ask about repeating back factual information (though you need factual information as a basis). ~8 Questions from the introduction/history about psychology ~12 Questions from Chapter 2 (Research in Psychology) ~12 Questions from Chapter 3 (Biological Psychology) ~12 Questions from Chapter 5 (Variations in Consciousness) While we cannot answer the questions on the review guide nor fill in missing class notes, we CAN help to clarify concepts which are confusing to you so please be sure to ask us questions. Be aware, however, that we do not tend to check email aside from business hours, so do be sure to ask questions early. On Sunday night (e.g., by 8 PM), some of the IAs will try to check their emails so be sure to write before then. Also, since this is your first time taking an exam from me (and for some, it is the first time taking an exam at the college level), I am also including samples of what questions may be like.
