Take a tour and answer soem questions.
6 of an on-line text has a series of _matching exercises_ where you can
match features to diagrams and photographs. If you have completed steps 2 and 3
above diligently, you should find this an interesting test of your knowledge.
Your teacher will follow-up with a formal class test.
