Study Resources for Final Exam

Stuff that I've given you over the course of the semester and that is important for your exam tomorrow....
All the vocab, grammar, flashcards, etc. that you could want are on the Español II page.

Another tip, look to the right underneath where it says SITIO POR CATEGORÍA. Click on where it says asd2 ch1, asd2 ch2, etc. This means Asi se dice chapter 1, chapter 2, etc. All the posts since January under asd2 ch1 to asd2 ch6 (chapters 1-6) should be very familiar to you/useful to review.
