This study guide is intended to assist in reviewing the reading materials for the first four weeks of class. I assume that each student has completed all the assigned readings, participated in the threaded discussions, and generally knowledgeable about the material.

Each chapter in the text is organized by Headings and Sub Headings. This study guide identifies the sections of each chapter by heading for which to focus your study efforts.

The quiz is an open book quiz. Therefore, it is more important to have a general understanding of the contents of each section and where you might find information on a specific topic. I would not spend a lot of time memorizing information, assuming that you have read the text and will use this guide in your efforts.
