How do I prepare for this test? • Each question is worth 6 points (breakdown a 3 part question) o Diagrams help for location (Number/label) o Bullet points work • You are never marked down for putting the wrong answer. (Unless it contradicts) • numbers and labels help both you and the graders (especially when describing WHERE something is) • You do not need to write Complete sentences o Bullets work well! (length does not matter, quality matters) o If a questions starts off as “List of 3 parts of the vulva” there is no need for the answer to contain “The following 3 terms are part of the vulva” • Bullets and Lists your answers helps out on tests (paragraphs might miss things sometimes) • You are allowed to write on the back of the page. Just make a note on your test. 
 (Ex. arrows, “more on back” etc. ) • Try to make it to the Book Review sessions! • Study both Book and lecture material • Make sure you understand the material!
