  • Although we wanted to create reasonably challenging questions, we did not intend to create 'trick' questions. If it feels like a trick question to you -- please re-read the question carefully and ask yourself what fact or concept is being questioned.
  • This is NOT a timed quiz. Take all the time you need to consider the question and make your best selection.
  • Be attentive to questions asking which statement is NOT correct, or if all statements are correct EXCEPT.
  • If you have read the question carefully, your first impression of the correct answer is usually the right choice to make.
