FINAL EXAM

Warning

These files contain the Keynote slides from my lectures. I have provided them as an aid to students who have attended the lectures and to those who miss a lecture for legimate reasons (e.g., illness). They should not be used as a substitute for attending lecture.

These slides do not contain everything I say in lecture, only the outline from which I work.

If you miss class, these slides should be used in conjunction with notes from a classmate. You can also go over them with a Sociology Central TA.
