Review Guide - Exam #2 (Spring '09)

     The exam will be similar in format to our first exam; it will be a mixture of objective (e.g., multiple choice, definition, fill-in-blank) and subjective (non-objective) questions.  The subjective questions could include completing/analyzing diagrams or experiments, short answers (require a few sentences), definitions, and matching.  The multiple choice questions will be scored electronically so you will need to bring & use a pencil.  The subjective questions can be answered using pencil or pen (I strongly recommend pencil).  The exam is designed to last one hour.  In general, the exam could include:  (1) anything covered in class; (2) items in textbook that pertain directly to concepts covered in class; (3) lecture notes on-line pertaining to material covered in class; (4) study sheets, handouts or other materials used/assigned in class; and (5) questions from videos seen in lecture (i.e., video worksheet).    On the first exam review sheet I provided some study hints that you may want to check out.   Below is a brief summary of the main topics that are "fair game" for the exam. 

Study Hints:
    Check out the Study tips, More Study Tips, and Advice from last semester's students.  The website for the textbook has lots of great stuff.  And, I have posted a copy of a sample exam to study.

Plant Nutrients & AcquisitionThis unit surveys the main nutrient elements required by plants and how they are obtained.

Animal Transport (Circulation) This unit highlights the operation of the circulatory systems used by animals for transporting materials through their bodies.

Gas Exchange in Animals & Plants:  This unit highlights the various mechanisms used by plants and animals to exchange gases with the environment.

Transport in PlantsThis units highlights the mechanism by which plants take up water by the roots, transport water from root to leaves, and transport solutes in the phloem
