Biol 200b midterm 2 review

This quiz was made in order to help me and my friends study for our biology midterm on Monday. This is a review to show each individual taking the quiz where they need to focus on.

How well do you think you know your biology? Hopefully this quiz will help you to know where you need to study more. By the time you finish this quiz, you will know a good amount of what is needed to know for the midterm.
