For those of you who had a hard time with the Europe & Russia map test- here is alternative study option for you. On YouTube there are a bunch of videos that have mnemonic devices to help with memorization of countries :) here is the link to South America (if you look at his profile, he has videos for middle America & the Caribbean, as well as other regions that we've talked about in class or will talk about in the future) Another helpful site is the Sheppards Software that you used for your very first assignment. Good Luck!
