Did you know that Clark College Career Services offers FREE Student Success Workshops on a variety of topics, including note-taking for college success, reading for college success, memory strategies, test anxiety, stress management, procrastination, creating a support system in college, APA citation, and more?  Click here for more info, including a link to the workshop schedule for Fall Quarter 2016...and if the workshop time you're interested in has already occurred, occurs too late in the quarter to be of any help to you for this quarter, or conflicts with your schedule, contact them to see if you can still at least get the information that they offer on each topic.

Here's an article that references a research study about a simple writing exercise to help reduce test anxiety.


Biology 160 lab Announcements

Second lab meeting of Week 11 (Wed./Thu. Nov. 30/Dec. 1) -- During the second lab of the week, you should:

* As directed, complete Lab Practical 2 as best as you can.  Make sure your name is on both the question packet and the answer sheet, and turn them both in to me when you're done. 

* I'll post scores for both Lab Practical 2 and the BRP sometime over the coming weekend, and if you would like to review your graded Lab Practical 2 Answer Sheet and/or your graded BRP, please come find me either before or after your scheduled Final Exam period next week, in either the lab (SBG 321) or my office (SBG 367) -- I'll be in one of those two places before and after the Final -- and you can take a look and get any questions you may have about them answered.

* There are no lab meetings next week, so you are done with lab for the quarter!
