Sample Examination: Wheelock chapters 1-19
note: this is what much of the exam will look like. Obviously I will change the nouns you will be asked to decline and the verbs you will be asked to conjugate and the sentences you will be asked to translate and discuss. Also, I removed certain sections (true/false concept questions, reading passages...).
Wait until you think you know the material well. Then test your knowledge of forms, vocabulary, and concepts by printing out this examination and taking it. Then click here for the answers to see how prepared you really are.
