Brief Review of Earth Science "RED BOOK" - Review Materials
The Red review book students have been using all year also works as a Review Book. At the end of each sub-topic, there are multiple choice questions that are designed based on Regents questions. After each Topic, the review book offers sample Regents questions in the form of multiple choice as well as constructed response. Both of these question types will comprise the Regents Exam. Additionally, the appendix of the review book contains 3 Regents Exams for practice. Below you will find a "digital" copy of the Review Book and the answers for the questions throughout the book.
