Exams will begin promptly and take the entire exam period to complete. Get to class on time and be
ready with the items below.

         a. #2 lead pencils (I suggest bringing 2)
         b. A good eraser
         c. Your “cheat sheet” note card – you must complete the review to get the “cheat sheet”
         d. YOUR BIOLOGY TEXTBOOK – to turn in. If you don’t have it the school will bill your

Review the chapters that we studied (see attached list).
    a.   Study and/or complete the reviews given out at the beginning of each unit/chapter studied.
    b.   Look over the objectives at the beginning of each section…can you do what the objective suggests?
    c.   Review the Study Guide at the end of each chapter. It highlights each section and reminds you of the
             major vocabulary words from each chapter.
    d.   Study class notes!!!

    a.   The “cheat sheet” is a handwritten on a 4 x 6 inch standard note card. (no typing or photocopies)
    b.   You must have something from each chapter to get the full extra credit. Use colors or lines to separate
         material from each chapter.
    c.   You can draw diagrams, structures, show equations, define vocabulary…..whatever you need
    d.   You may not use any sort of magnifying device on exam day to read your card. Be sensible.
    e.   Submit your card before exams on your exam day. They will be checked and given back to you once the
         exam begins.
    f. You can receive up to 5 points on your final exam for making your note card!!!!!!!!!
       For Example: If the exam has 100 questions and you got 55 pts on Exam + 5 pts for
       doing the notecard = 60% on Exam and You Passed!!!

      Cellular Respiration Chapter 9.2 and 9.3
      Cell Growth & Divison (Mitosis) Chapter 10
      Meiosis –Chapter 11
      Mendel and Heredity (Genetics) – Chapter 12

To prepare for your second semester exam, answer the following questions.
You should also make sure that you have your review/vocabulary sheets from each
unit. I will provide you with a list of possible vocabulary that will be on the exam.
You may prepare a note card, front and back, to bring with you to the exam.

On the day of the exam you must bring with you a pencil, your textbook, and your
note card (if you prepare one). You must also pay any library fine that you have
before you will be allowed to take the exam.
