Dr. W. Crone (303 FTZ, 629-7439, cronewil@hvcc.edu, http://www.hvcc.edu/academ/faculty/crone/index.html)

The final exam is WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1999 FROM 3:45 UNTIL 5:45 P.M.


You will be taking the exam in Amstuz 215 and Amstuz 216. Please remember your section number: 001R (Monday lab); 002R (Tuesday lab); 003R (Friday lab, Wednesday recitation); 004R (Friday lab, Friday recitation). 001R and 003R will be in room 215 with Professor Laird (English Dept.) proctoring, and 002R and 004R will be in room 216 with Professor Karpien (English Dept.) proctoring. I will be the hallway proctor for the 2nd floor of Amstuz, so I will check in from time to time into both rooms.

The final exam consists of 150 multiple choice questions. The exam is comprehensive, with approximately 10 questions per week of material. There are no exemptions from the final.

You will be allowed a crib sheet for this zoology final exam. Crib notes are notes that the student is permitted to use during an examination. Their value is derived from the effort each individual student spends constructing them. They function best when they contain resources usually available to be looked up in the real world (hint: write down what you have trouble remembering and tend to look in the text for). For this examination, crib notes must be hand written on one side only by the person using it. It may be no larger than 8.5" X 11" (standard size paper). No xeroxes, mechanical, or electronic copies are permitted.

The crib notes must be available for inspection by the proctor before the beginning of the examination. One single sheet, written on one side, may be kept and used on the table surface only. A single mark on the second side nullifies permission to use the sheet. Bringing crib notes out after the exam begins is not permitted. The crib sheet is to be handed in with your exam.

Final grades for the course must be in soon after the exam is over, so I will be at HVCC within the next day to turn in your overall course grade (50% lecture, 25% lab, 25% final).

Please do not call my office, my home, or the main Biology office for grades!!!

If you want to find out your grade before the official mailing, please give me a self-addressed, stamped envelope, or e-mail me by the early morning of the 23rd.

Suggestions for study

For the first 3/4 of the course, you will find that review as you did for the three hour exams will highlight the approach and emphasis I make. Many of the exam questions will be familiar, but not necessarily the same. For the last portion of the course, remember that each week has approximately 10 questions. That includes week 12, echinoderms; week 13, animal diversity summary; week 14, cell division and genetics; week 15, biochemistry; and week 16, cellular metabolism.

Week 12: Be able to highlight the unique features of echinoderms and recognize different echinoderm classes. Know major differences among protostome and deuterostome development.

Week 13: We will conduct an overall review of the invertebrates, and modern approaches to classification and understanding of relationships.

Week 14: Be familiar with the general aspects of cell division, making sure you know what meiosis is and how it differs from mitosis. I will also ask a few basic questions on genetics.

Week 15: I would make sure that you are comfortable with pH and properties of water, in addition to the other aspects of chemistry highlighted. Also, be familiar with basic energy principles.

Week 16: I would try to remember general enzyme function and regulation, and general aspects of ATP, glycolysis, citric acid cycle, fermentation, and the electron transport chain.

Good luck!
