Study the lecture material in detail. In the textbook reading, for the chapters covered on the midterm, you should make sure that you can do the blue exercises to check your ability to integrate and apply the information in the chapter to appropriate situations. You may also find the questions at the back of the chapter helpful for working on testing skills. Midterm II will cover material from chapters 27-34 (Ch 27-30 are covered here in study guide part A, and Ch 31-34 will be covered in study guide part B to follow ).

Midterm II will be comprised of multiple choice and possibly some matching questions. It’ll be worth a total of 170 points.
