Exam 2 Study Guide, point values approximate, between 45-55 points total for Exam 2
This study guide provides students a guide to study. If anything is added in the vocab or identification sections, I will place it in bold font. Students will be tested on info presented in lecture and recitation before their scheduled exam. Creating flashcards (physical or digital) for vocab, IDs, essays, etc. is recommended as a study tool.
If your recitation has already been tested on the information below, you will not be tested on the same info twice.
