INSTRUCTIONS READ THESE!

Make sure that your opscan is filled with:


o Your name
o ID NUMBER (WRITE and BUBBLE CORRECTLY)
o Test Version Letter (You will find the test version noted inside. DO NOT open
your test until you are instructed).

Sign the Honor Pledge and print your name in the space above.

Work each problem on this test copy, then circle the single best answer, and bubble the
corresponding circle on the opscan.

Answer all 30 questions.

Turn in both your test copy and your opscan to receive a grade.

IMPORTANT! You MUST correctly bubble your student ID# to obtain a grade on this
test! You MUST also mark the test version on your opscan to receive a grade. Failure to
correctly include your student ID# and /or to enter a test version on your opscan will
mean that you will NOT get a grade on this test!!
Use the blank sheets of paper at the end of the test to draw the necessary Lewis
structures. (These will not be graded, but you will need to refer to them to answer the test
questions. These sheets MUST be turned in with your opscan and test copy to receive a
grade please tuck loose sheets inside your test copy).

This practice test is a slightly modified version of Test 3 given in Fall 2013,
which covered three chapters. This test was modified to only include 25
questions from Chapters 9 and 10. Your test will have 30 questions from
Chapters 9 and 10.
