Typical Matching Words from Tests

The list of some words that could be used as matching words, Spring, 2000 (unless indicated otherwise).  Some have been used on other tests. Use this list in addition to other sources as a study help. The final test will cover additional materials as well. Not all of this list will be on the final exam.  Any test has to be only a sample of what we know in order not to be too long.  Items that say "not covered in 2000" will NOT be on the April 2000 final, but I have left them on the list because they have useful information to teachers. mb
