Review Sheet FINAL EXAM ASTR 305 Life in the Universe FINAL EXAM COVERS All material covered on midterm exams 13 Use this Review Sheet and Review Sheets for Exams 1 2 and 3 New Material is Habitability Ch 10 Discovering Exoplanets gravitational wobble effect STUDY ADVICE First study the solutions for the previous exams 23 of the FINAL will be duplicated verbatim from midterm exams 13 though there will also be some new questions on the material covered on these exams Flash cards of some of the de nitions and of the main points of the essaymatching questions may be helpful Second go through the Review sheets and identify topics you still need to review Third study the lecture notes PowerPoint slides and your notes of these topics use the text book as a third supplemental source here too do not go back and read the book use it as a reference book being sure to be thorough enough that you do not end up thinking negative examples and such are the correct answer Last do a final last overview of all material not just your weak points For most ef cient studying I recommend that you make sure your midterm exams are clearly marked with the correct answers including the essay questions Then I recommend that you have somebody ask you the midterm exam questions as if you were retaking those exams This would be like an oral exam Keep careful records of what you get correct and what you miss or in the case of essay questions which points you did not respond to clearly Be sure to always answer only what is being asked for in the questions Study the problem spots and repeat the oral exam on those spots This will be your best point maker for the final Then going through the review sheets do a general review of all material that is on the review sheets but that did not get asked about on any of the midterm exams Use the Powerpoint slides you class notes and the text book This step should make it so that you have covered everything you need to study FINAL FORMAT
