Astro 4 - Key Themes in My Test Bank


This is a generic list. I made this by looking at all the ~ 400 questions in my test bank. Remember that I make my quizzes and finals fresh each semester, and you'll see roughly 120 questions drawn randomly from this master test bank.  For more help in studying for your particular questions, refer to the study guide I handed out and which is on-line for the Monday/Wednesday, and for the Monday evening classes, which focuses in a different way on your particular exams. Looks like a lot to learn here, right? But before you get depressed, realize that your particular exams will only sample a small part of this, and all you need is a 75% for an "A". You can do it!
