Dr. Ron Briggs
ASU Fall 2011
Exam 2 Topics
The exam will cover Chapters 4-6 and all material covered in lecture (including the reaction classes from section 3.2
and the concentration terms from Ch. 13).
Specific material from your lab experiments will not be tested on this exam,
but the concepts presented during your lab sessions tie in closely with the lecture material. At least a few questions will
be taken directly from your online HW and recitation activities.
A practice exam is attached.
As stated in the syllabus, you should
use practice exams as practices of real exams
other words, study as you would for a real exam, sit down with nothing but a pencil and a calculator, and give yourself
70-75 minutes to complete it. This should be a good indicator of how you will do on the real thing and give you clues
on what to brush up on. These questions are also different from doing problems in the book in that they are not
“compartmentalized” in such a way that you know exactly what section of the book to look at to solve them.
to the attached practice exam, your lecture notes, lecture quizzes, handouts, recitation activities, and assigned homework
questions are valuable study aids.
As always, copies of all quizzes and handouts are available in the ‘Course
Documents’ section of Blackboard.
Take advantage of TA and instructor office hours. A review session is being planned by Chad from the
LRC at the following time:
