Review for Final Exam Below is a brief review of NEW material that will be on the final. Any material that is in the textbook or was covered in the lectures is fair game (even material not listed on this review sheet). The final will have somewhere between 60 and 75 multiple choice questions. Because grades will need to be calculated quickly, I will probably not have many essay or short answer items. About 30% of the questions will reflect new material. The remaining material will be cumulative material from earlier in the semester. Accordingly, you might want to consult your review sheets from the first few midterms.
