Mostly terms, coming directly from ALL ASPECTS of the notes :) Let this serve as your second reveiwer Study from the reviewer, try not to cheat though ;) NOT case sensitive If it says that there may be multiple answers, it may be due to answers with different spacing and answers with s in the end (all options are considered) If there are two or more answers, separate them with commas and a space EXAMPLE: apple, orange For any questions and complaints please tell me. not just memorization, also so you can study and understand what the terms mean. GOODLUCK! -cel
