Exam 3 Study Guide This is a guide and should help you guide your studies – this is NOT an exhaustive list, merely a  starting place. Make sure you have read the assigned chapters and are familiar with the concepts  described in your text. Make sure to go over the powerpoints and your notes. It may be helpful to test yourself on the material you have read by writing or saying the answers to the “Test  Yourself” questions in the chapter. DON’T MISTAKE FAMILIARITY FOR KNOWING. The  very act of trying to answer a question increases the chances that you will be able to answer it  when you try again later. Study in spaced our time; cramming is not usually effective. Good luck and remember to breathe!
