PRINCIPLES OF BIOLOGY FINAL STUDY GUIDE The final exam for this course will be cumulative. It covers everything from Chapter 2-24, and 52-55. There will be somethings on the exam that are not on this study guide and there will be some things on this study guide that are not on the exam. This study guide will include vocab, textbook page numbers, practice problems and practice questions. Along with this study guide I would recommend reviewing the Mastering Biology questions and looking at the practice packets that Dr. Sundermann has posted for each chapter on her Canvas page. The final exam will be given during the regular lecture time on Monday, December 7, 2015 at 12.00 pm.
