    Step 1:  After you have completed the test, you may try to do some extra credit (1/2 point for each correct problem) on Balancing Equations. Here is the website: http://chemistry.about.com/od/chemicalequations/l/blbalancequiz.htm?lastQuestion=3&answers=3&submit=Next+Question+%3E%3E&ccount=1You can also access the website labeled Ch 6 Balancing Equations on my Chemistry page of the Z- Web Network. Step 2:  Work on your Final Exam Study Guide

         In this test you will not be able to navigate back and forth between questions. All of your work will be saved as you move forward in the test. However, please take your time in reviewing your answer before selecting it. You can not go backwards on the test.      I will be coming around for the Binder Check and to check your pH lab. Please do not talk during the test.      Thank you and Good Luck! Z
