Quiz Review!

Date: April 12, 2002

Quiz Point Value: 50

We will go over all of the information that has been presented up to this point. This is the time to get all of your questions addressed and to go over things that you might be shaky on.

This class will be part lecture and part hands on lab to practice those concepts that will be featured in the upcoming quiz.

If you can't make this class; I highly suggest reviewing and knowing all of the review and extra credit questions as they are all fair game for the exam.

Also fair game is any reading or Internet field trips that you have been sent on.

Good luck, I know that you will study and do well on this quiz.
