Study Guide Midterm Exam

The Midterm exam is multiple choice, True False and short paragraph answers.

I can not tell you how many questions are on the exam, but the quiz will take a good portion of the class time. You will need to make sure you have memorized all of below.

Everything below is on the Exam and you can not use your notes or the book. (Sorry you need to know this stuff.)

You need to find this information in the books as well as on my webpage or from your notes from the lectures.

If you can not find the subject listed below in the book or on my webpage, and you did not take notes on the subject, you can search the web. Most likely, what you find on the web about the subject matter is correct. But make sure you keep your web references, because if I mark it wrong, you have proof that this is what you learned.
