Editors Note:
After spending time in prayer to the Lord Jesus to help me study for the exam, I have prepared my own sample exam multiple choice questions in anticipation of the real exam. I wanted to share them with you all on this site to help you study if you think it would be helpful. If you do not know the answers, I would go over those pages from the textbook..

I do not know if the real exam will be easier than the one I prepared to help me study or if it will be harder. I did write 54 multiple choice questions and  based on the notes and textbook for the 4 chapters. These questions do not cover all the material in the notes or textbook but are a good way to study.

I would approach the multiple choice questions as fill in the blanks first. If you donít know the answer, then look at the choices and try to figure out the answer. Have your notes and textbook ready! I do hope it helps you all to study!

Take this sample exam in test conditions and see how well you will do and where you need to brush up on! There are almost 33 pages of content that will help you be ready for the exam for chapters 9, 10, 12, & 13!  May the Lord bless you and guide you! Amen!

Most questions are from chapters 12 & 13. I hope you all receive it before the exam. Even if you receive it 15 min before the exam, you can go over the answer key to review for the exam.
