Revolutionary War to prelude to Civil War - Exam Review
This is your US History exam review. Please pass it on to your friends - not everyone has given me their email address. Feel free to email me if you have any questions. We will devote classtime to reviewing for the exam.
The exam will be composed of two parts: a short answer section and a multiple choice section. You may bring in ONE three by five inch index card to use on the short answer portion only. Use both sides of this card to record notes useful in answering the short answer questions. You may not refer to these notes during the multiple choice section of the exam.
