COMMUNICATION 100 Examination Three Study Guide Frederick C. Corey and Nurhayat Bilge General Information The final exam will be held on Tuesday, May 10, 2011, at 12:10 p.m. in our regular classroom. The examination is not comprehensive. It will be based on material from Chapters Nine, Ten, Eleven and Thirteen. The 50 questions are multiple choice (no true/false). You will be asked to read each item carefully and mark the best answer. Bring a #2 pencil. Mark your answer on the answer sheet using a #2 pencil. You may write on the exam, but your answers must be on the answer sheet. Like the first two exams, there will be an emphasis on definitions. Which terms should you focus on? Start with the words in the bold font in the margins of the textbook. Then, focus on the words in the textbook narrative that are in bold font. The lectures extracted the information we considered most important. The lectures are an excellent guide, but this is not to say that the exam will not have questions based on material from the book that were not in the lectures. Questions The questions below are simply guides to help you think about the material that will be on the final exam.
