The Chapter Test review will be posted on the testing site. It will have 25 random questions from a question bank of about 100. The chapter test will have 50 questions on it, so there is a chance that you may get completely different questions from the review. Most of the questions have been taken from the lesson reviews, so study those and good luck! All assignments for this chapter will be due on Mar 4, 2009. The lesson on Cronus will be skipped this term.

Could you clarify your dates please? Do you mean 3 April or 4 March? It might help to actually put a month because America writes dates differently to the rest of the world and it gets confusing. I'm reading this as 3 April and shall continue to do so unless told otherwise.
