preface

Welcome to the sixth edition of the Cutnell/Johnson Test Bank. The Test Bank contains approximately 2200 questions of varying difficulty. The Homework Choices section lists all of the even-numbered problems in the text and provides multiplechoice answers for them. The notation and language used throughout this volume match the usage in the text; and the questions have been placed into the section of each chapter from which its subject originates. The sections are grouped in the same manner as the homework problems are at the end of each chapter in the text. The test bank has been designed for use in test preparation software for both Windows and Macintosh platforms by Brownstone Research Group. The software is very easy to use and provides full-editing capability. I highly recommend trying the program. Copies are available from your Wiley representative. Test Bank questions are designed to test conceptual understanding of the material as well as problem-solving ability. The questions have also been labeled with a difficulty indicator: − less than average difficulty − average difficulty − greater than average difficulty Instructors may choose to use the test bank questions in either open- or closedbook test conditions. Some problems include the necessary constants, but, in general, students will require access to the constants that are listed on the inside covers of the text. Each question has five answers labeled a, b, c, d, and e for use in a multiple choice format. An instructor who prefers to not use the multiple choice test format may still use the questions by simply omitting the choices. The Homework Choices section of this volume allows instructors to assign homework in a multiple choice format. Each problem has, in almost all cases, five choices that are labeled A, B, C, D, and E. The few problems that require a graph, drawing, or proof are not available for multiple choice solutions and are noted accordingly. The Concepts & Calculations section in each chapter has multiple choice answers only for the problem portion of each question because the conceptual questions are, in general, not suited for the multiple choice format. The Brownstone software is also available for preparing multiple choice homework assignments. Acknowledgments: I would like to thank Stuart Johnson, John D. Cutnell and Kenneth W. Johnson for their patience and unwavering attention to detail and Bruce R. Boller for carefully reviewing the Test Bank. I am also grateful to my wife, Cathie, for her support and assistance in the preparation of this manuscript. This book is dedicated to Frank R. Valentine (1910-1990) and Henry J. Deutschendorf, Jr. (1943-1997). David T. Marx
