quick reference "flashcards"

quick reference "flashcards"

**IHere, you will find pictures that contain many of the concepts you need to know for the exam.**

I put them together as "flash cards", or quick photographic reminders that you can refer to anytime you want to review.

By no means I claim this is a comprehensive list. Everyday I realize I could add this concept or the other. As I have mentioned, I will see the exam for the first time at the same time you do, and so I don't know exactly what will be on it. I do know, however, based on experience and the analysis of all relevant materials, that the concepts presented here are important to know and understand. I also know, that I'm committed to making a "flash card" anytime I realize one can me made.

I hope you find these helpful!
