Before taking the chapter test you should first work through each section in the chapter. To work though a section,
1. Read the section lesson, working along with "pencil in hand" as you read.
Don't just read it, DO IT!
2. Solve the odd numbered practice problems for the section.
Check your answers.
3. Take the chapter section quiz.
You may redo the section quizzes for a better grade.
After completing the above process for each section of a chapter, you should take the chapter post-test.
You may also retake the chapter post-tests, if you think you can improve on a previous score.
Final Exam: The final exam will be given on Monday, 7 May 2012, from 2:00-4:00, in our usual meeting room, MS 108.
