Hi Everyone,

Dr. Valera relayed that some of you were interested in pre-final grades.  I have attached the pre-final scores.  I have a few Exams in my bag (maybe 3) where I have to look at Exam adjustments.

Here are the scores I have (uh-click on the link folks):  Pre-final Scores

Please refer to the syllabus and the scoring system therein to determine where you are prior to the final exam.  If you see something that does not make sense please email me.  Thank you.

Good luck to everyone tomorrow evening!   PLEASE “GET’R DUN FOR ME”

Will be thinking about you all!

Hi Everyone,

I received a copy of the Chapter 13 slides from Dr. Valera. A link to those slides is shown below. Personally, I much prefer my slides!

Ch 7 Lecture on Chapt 13 (1)

Please let me reemphasize that Section 13.2 in our textbook is not covered in the Exam 4 or the Final Exam. Please do not waste time studying that material. The emphasis and questions for Chapter 13 are concepts and questions in Section 13.1 and Section 13.2 ONLY.

Section 13.4 (concentration terms) is not included in Exam 4, BUT WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE FINAL EXAM! Section 13.5 is not covered whatsoever this semester – no questions will appear in Exam 4 or the Final Exam.

Use the strategy used in prior Exams, do the sample problems, homework problems for the pertinent sections, and practice the multiple choice problems in the textbook website.

Good luck everyone!

DG
