This page has been created to assist everyone with the final test. The idea is to form study groups, post questions, make a study outline, or ANYTHING that we could post to help eachother in the final test. As you all know, the test is coming very soon (as in the first week of December) so we should get started on getting ready for the test.

Please feel free to add sections or anything pertaining to the test!!!
