Nutrition Exam II Sample Questions on Energy Balance, Water Balance, Vitamins and Minerals"

By Ramesh C.Reddy
Pittsburgh Standard

Saturday, October 07, 2006

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. 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 what each term in the multiple choice means, I would go over those terms. Use the glossary in our textbook and the slides to help you study including the chapters. Some of the terms do not exist.

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 wrote 50 multiple choice questions for the four chapters with most of the emphasis on Vitamins and Minerals. This means this set of questions will not help you as much with the Energy Balance and Water Balance chapters. All these questions do not cover all the material in the notes or textbook but are a good way to study the material you do not know the correct answer to!

Take this sample exam in test conditions and see how well you will do and where you need to brush up on!

Read the questions without looking at the multiple-choice answers. If you do not know the answer after you read it, then look at the choices and figure the answer out. Check the chapter and slide # in your notes for the answer. Also, the ones you get wrong read over the entire slide and variations of it.

For further study, ask yourself why other choices are wrong if the answer is not all of the above. What would make that particular choice the right answer?

For example if a certain vitamin causes a deficiency, what deficiency do the other vitamins cause, etc. Use the textbook pages for further study.

This is sample exam II’s 1st set of questions to help you prepare. The purpose of these questions is to serve as a study guide and not to think you know all the material if you ace this sample exam. Remember, there are not as many questions on Energy Balance and Water balance in this set of questions. The answers can be found either in the slides or pages mentioned.

I am doing it this way to help you get a broader view on the topic and not be fixated with just the answer.
