Remember you can only do this once per semester. Exam Instructions: At the top of this page write your first and last name along with your 4 ­digit code that you made up. Write this 4 ­digit code on every subsequent page. You may use models. You may not use a calculator. If any answers are written on the back of a page you must indicate it on the front of the page. Otherwise, the answer will not be graded. Do not attach additional papers to the test. Make your answers clear, concise, and complete. You will be graded not only on your answers, but also on the means by which you communicate them. This typically means you must draw a structure or diagram to go along with short explanations. Remember a complete answer also involves drawing resonance structures and mechanisms (including use of arrows) if necessary, even if not explicitly asked for. Part of your grade requires you to recognize when these explanations are pertinent. Also remember that the exam is comprehensive and some explanations require principles you also learned from block 1. If multiple products are possible from a reaction make sure to label major and minor or make the decision that only one product is reasonable. Exam 2 Stats: 10 Questions. Multi parts.
