The best way to prepare for the test ”after you've studied ”is to take at least one practice exam. I've included one in this chapter for that reason; the test questions are located in the pages that follow. (Unlike the questions in the preceding chapters in this book, the answers don't follow the questions immediately; you'll have to turn to Chapter 16 to review the answers separately.)
Give yourself 90 minutes to take the exam, and keep yourself on the honor system ”don't look at earlier text in the book or jump ahead to the answer key. When your time is up or you've finished the questions, you can check your work in Chapter 16. Pay special attention to the explanations for the incorrect answers; these can also help reinforce your knowledge of the material. Knowing how to recognize correct answers is good, but understanding why incorrect answers are wrong can be equally valuable .
