GENERAL REMINDERS: This is only a guide. This should not be a “primary resource” on reviewing your lessons. It is still better to study using your
books, notes in your notebook, seat works you had taken, quizzes you had taken, PowerPoint presentations uploaded by the teachers (if any), videos
presented in class (if any), personal researches for deeper understanding on the topic, and experiences (if applicable). Please do not depend too much on
this reviewer. You are free to omit review questions according to your preferences, skills, and will. Do not blame the reviewer nor its creator if you failed
on your exams. Good luck in your examinations! May the odds ever be in your favor. Another reminder, the contents of this reviewer are not the exams!


REMINDERS! Wrong spelling is wrong. Be mindful of your grammar. Be mindful of your syntax.
