Psych 355 Adolescent Psychology 2018 Final Exam Study Guide A Brief Review of Tips for Taking Multiple Choice Tests Remember take your time and read the questions carefully Some questions are a little tricky for example they ask for the answer that is not true or that is the exception so you need to stop and think about the right answer and not respond impulsively It is a good idea to think about what the answer might be before you look at the answer options Some people answer the easy questions first and then go back and figure out the answers to the hard questions When you evaluate the possible answers you will find that some responses are clearly wrong or nonsensical so you can eliminate them Some responses have part of the answer correct but another part that is wrong so you can eliminate that answer Sometimes two answers seem right but one response seems a little better than the other so pick that one Lastly sometimes you get a clue from another exam question or something from another question sparks a memory of a better answer to a question In those cases it makes some sense to go back and change an answer A Few Comments About the Final The final exam will have 100 multiple choice questions on it You have two hours to complete the exam Make sure you fill out the Scantron answer sheet correctly using a 2 pencil if you use a pen the machine won t score your exam and you may wonder why your grade is delayed As with the midterm exam there will be two versions of the exam Version 1 and Version 2 When you are done with the exam you must turn in both the answer sheet and the exam questions returning your completed exam to the correct station for whichever version of the exam you have otherwise you will receive a very poor grade and you will be confused and troubled and contact me with consternation Remember that the final exam has a cumulative aspect so of the 100 questions on the exam about 15 questions are repeated from the midterm exam so be sure to review the study guide and your notes from the midterm exam As with the midterm exam most questions come from topics that were covered in both the lectures and the book so one good way to study is to look over your notes and then review the chapters in the book and then study the items that show up on both Pay careful attention to the vocabulary making the connection boxes and chapter summary sections There will be a few questions that were only covered in the book and did not get discussed in the lectures and a few questions will be about themes that were only discussed in the lectures
