FINAL EXAM Study Guide rev
THIS GENERAL STATEMENT CAREFULLY:
in this course is to obtain for yourself a useful working knowledge and
understanding, at an appropriate level, of some basic organic chemistry and
biochemistry, as outlined in the syllabus and subsequently elaborated in class.
The resources available to you include the text, lectures and class handouts,
laboratory exercises, references in print and on the internet, consultation with
the instructor outside of class, tutors on duty in PS-205, or by arrangement,
and whatever other legitimate means are necessary. There is no easy path to
success. Put the work in. It is particularly important to pay attention to
the following sections in each chapter: Concept Summary, Learning
Objectives, Key Terms and Concepts, and Key Reactions. In particular, the
learning objectives tell you what types of knowledge you will be expected to
demonstrate. You will not
be able to demonstrate them unless you understand the principles involved!
Similarly, you will find it pointless to memorize key terms without knowing what
they mean and how they can be applied.
sure, yeah, yeah, yeah – just tell us what’s going to be on the test,
What? Questions designed to show if you have learned to use these
principles and their associated language.
How? The final exam consists of 122 multiple-choice questions. Each question has one best answer. It is a comprehensive exam covering the entire semester's content. At this point it would probably best to do a quick review of your old study guides and exams and quizzes for chapters 1-13 and review the class handouts for chapters 14 and 15.
