Answer on yuour own paper. Be sure to number each of your answers. Try to use specific information. Each item is equally weighted. Each response will be given full credit if I consider it "at expectations." Reduced points will be given for responses that are below expectations--especially "skimpy" answers. Bonus points may be awarded for quality answrs. Budget your time. You should spend no more than 5 minutes on any one item. I suggest you start with the ones which you can do most quickly. If you have marked the book as you read, you should easily be able to finish. Yest, there are some built in points for "wiggle room." You can still earn 100% if some of your answers are a little below expectations.
Check the board for any hints!

IMPORTANT: ANSWER THE * QUESTIONS LAST!

GOOD LUCK!
