MLS365 Study Guide Assignment Directions
Study Guide on the following chapters
Chapter 1-Introduction to Parasitology
Chapter 10-Clinical Lab Procedures
Chapter 2-Part 1 Intestinal Nematodes
Chapter 3 The Cestodes part 1; The Cestodes part 2
Each study guide is due by 11:59 pm the day before the exam.
You must submit your study guide as a MICROSOFT WORD document (PDF, Google docs, apple doc will NOT be accepted by Turn It In Blackboard, therefore cannot be graded and will be recorded as a grade of ZERO)
Study guide must be submitted as a single Word file. Late submissions are permitted but will result in a 10 (TEN) point deduction off final grade for every day late.
How to make your study guide:
Your study guide must include ALL chapters of the exam. One page per chapter is suggested. (if exam is 5 chapters, study guide should be at least 5 pages)
Using Microsoft Word, create a study guide/outline for each chapter on exam. The format is entirely up to you but should NOT be in narrative/essay format. Outline form is suggested.
Outside sources are not needed nor should be used. Use your textbook, PPT slides and your own notes from lecture.
Heading should include your Name, Course, Study Guide # and Date
Clearly label each section with CHAPTER #. Then list subheadings for each chapter. Use bullet points when necessary. You can include key concepts, topics, definitions, questions and answers. etc…
YOU MUST USE YOUR OWN WORDS . DO NOT COPY AND PASTE from slides, textbook, classmates or internet. COPYING/PLAGIARISM may result in immediate failure of the course
To balance your work load it is suggested that you write your study guide as each chapter is completed, rather than waiting until the end of all the chapters to write it all.
Try not to look at this as “extra” work. Each study guide that you create is not just a way of gaining credit and points toward a good course grade, but is created to help you study and to well in the course! The study guide is basically an outline/summary of power point lessons, your notes and textbook excerpts on what you have to study for each exam.
The outline/format is flexible. The goal is to create a study in the format in which you can study and retain the subject matter the best. As long as you have heading and subheading feel free to use bullet points, letters, numbers, indentation, etc.. Colors, highlighting, and bold face are also good ways to make note of content you want to stand out. I put two samples on the following page. These are only EXAMPLES.. use your imagination, and design your guide in a way that will maximize your study time!
