Nutrition Exam I Sample Questions II"

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 and fill in the blanks 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 what each term in the multiple choice means, I would go over those terms. Use the glossary in our textbook 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 five chapters. These questions do not cover all the material in the notes or textbook but are a good way to study material you do not know the correct answer to!

Remember, our test does need a bit of memorization since that’s the only way we can get the fill in the blanks right so I would approach the multiple choice questions as fill in the blanks first. If you don’t 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!
