CHEM&100 MIDTERM STUDY GUIDE

Your Midterm will be closed-book and closed-notes. You will be able to use personal
periodic table or the one located on the cover of your book. Questions on your midterm
will equal a total of 100 points. You will have 2.5-hours to complete the midterm. Spelling
will count so please know how to spell compound names.
Review your Chapter Assignment questions and know the material found in them. This list
is just a guide for study.
