  • Make your own study guide:  here is one started for you. I entered all of the Key Concepts/Learning Goals found on our Chapter Overview and that will be on the first quiz. You need to add the rest of the Key Concepts/Learning Goals to study for the unit test.
  • When studying for your test, be sure to go over all your quizzes, homework,labs and the Chapter Objectives (above).  Another great way to study is by answering the questions at the end of the chapter. has great self-test with answers and vocab review games.  Try them!
