Review Guide Spring '09 - Exam #3

     The exam will be similar in format to our previous two exams; 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.  Note that you are not responsible for every page in the assigned chapters, just the topics that pertain to what was covered/discussed in class.

Sensory Systems in Plants

Chemical Signaling in Plants & Animals - (not on exam - covered on final exam)
