Studying for the Test

The Unit 2 Test is upon us!  In order to do well, you have to study.  Studying is more than just going through notes or looking at flashcards on Quizlet.  Those things help, but they are not enough.  You need to actively study--that is reuse the information in your own way.  The best way to do this is to learn by categorization.

We talked about 3 general topics in this unit:  Greece, Rome and Han.  If you can place all of the terms into one of those three topics, you are half-way there.
