Study guide outlines can be found on the first two pages of each packet with all new vocabulary listed out in a chart on page 1 or 2 of each packet. If you know this material and know it well enough to apply it, you will easily pass the test. It is not unusual for several students in each class to score a perfect score of 100%. Additional study materials can be downloaded at the bottom of this page, however, study guides will be updated and uploaded one week prior to the test. The study guide is not for points, and will not be collected. If you have questions about any of the study guide questions, please see me, or better yet- ask in class. Others may have the same question as you but might not ask.
