  Chapter Guide: Final Lecture Exam

The Lecture Final Exam is approaching, and this is the time to study hard to prepare for it; hopefully you will see how much you have learned this quarter and appreciate the many hours devoted toward studying... they will be of help to you now! Here are some hints to get you started:

  • The CH 221 Final Exam covers Chapter 1 through Chapter 6. There will be 32 multiple choice questions and a handful of short answer questions on the exam. Each multiple choice question will have five possible answers. You will have access to a periodic table (see this link to see what the periodic table looks like.)
  • The first page of the exam will include an integrity statement that you will be required to sign. Signing the integrity statement implies that you have not received (and will not be giving) any information on the final exam to others that might imply cheating; a failure to sign the integrity statement grants an automatic score of zero, so make sure the first thing you do is to sign the statement. An example of the integrity statement (and grading sheet - see below) can be found here.
  • The last page of the final exam will be a scoring page which will be filled out by the instructor when the exam has been graded; leave this page blank to avoid a point penalty.
  • You will need a calculator and a pencil or pen for the exam.
  • Section 01 and H1 students will turn in the exam at the end of the class period. Section W1 students will email the exam as a PDF file to the instructor. Late midterm exams will be given a score of zero points, so make sure you turn the exam in early to be safe.

By this time your intense studying of the previous chapters will begin to really pay off by making the study process much easier; you have conquered the material to this point and should continue to do so on the final exam. Look over your old quizzes, exams, problem sets, etc. to remember how far you've come this term academically.

Here are some materials on the CH 221 website which may help your studying:

In addition, you might wish to study using the Practice Problem Sets (with answers given at the end of the document):

If you need assistance on these problems, you have several options. You can visit the AVID / Learning Success Center located above the MHCC library on the Mt. Hood Community College campus; they have tutors available to help you with your chemistry homework. You can also contact me if you have any questions.

Good luck with your studying! As always, let me know if you have any questions. Peace, --- Michael
