    Hi Dr. Lohman,

    I noticed there were a few pages from last chapter about covering/lining membranes and tissue repair that weren’t covered in lecture. I assume we’ll need to know this info for the test/midterm though?

    Hi Chris,

    if we didn’t cover it in lecture then it won’t be on the test. It could only help to know more, but I definitely wouldn’t focus on those pages.
