Each exam will include two free-response questions and ten multiple-choice or true-false questions similar to those posted above.

 

Some general advice when studying:

 

- Many students find reviewing in groups helpful, provided everyone stays focused.

 

- Before looking at an answer-key, try to answer the questions.  It’s very easy to look at an answer and say, “I knew that.  I could have done that” when, in actuality, you did not know that and could not have done that.

 

- Likewise, just because someone explains something to you and it makes sense, does not mean you understand it to any depth.  Wait an hour or two and see if you can explain it back to them, or to anyone.  Being able to verbalize a clear and coherent answer to a question is the best evidence you could answer a similar question in the future.
