This guide will help you substantially, but you should still review your class notes, reading notes, and the readings themselves.

For each concept below, you should be able to define it and identify it as used in a context. Some questions will ask you to apply your knowledge of these concepts.

The test will contain approximately 50 multiple-choice questions. Bring a Scantron 882 and pencil to the test.
