Remember that you can go back to the beginning of the semester on the blog and look at the links and information I have provided. If you are having difficulty in a unit while you are studying and reviewing for the final exam you can use the resources here to assist you.

Oh yeah, do not forget to tell your friends in the class to go to the blog. Many of them do not visit the blog as regularly as you do.

Happy studying!!!!!
