Topic Review Sheet - Midterm
How to use this review sheet: Below you will find a bulleted list of topics that may be on the
exam. Anything that is bulleted is a distinct topic that you may find on the exam. The topics are
arranged hierarchically to help you organize the ideas in your mind.
Important Note: The indentation is simply to help you organize the concepts in your mind, but
any bulleted topic below is fair game for the exam. Even the top-level topics are considered to
be unique concepts that you should be able to define (e.g., you need to be able to define
“conformity” as well as “Idiosyncrasy credits”).
