    Do we need to know about AIDS (causes mechanics and prevention) for the exam eimearhickey

    In my book in the viruses chapter they give us 3/4 of a page about aids and its causes prevention and mechanics and I don't know if I need to know about it because it's in the purple box with a question mark but I don't know if it's important or not???

      No. Just be aware that AIDS affects the function of helper T cells

      AIDS is not specifically mentioned on the syllabus so you will not be asked a specific question about it.

      You need to know about STD's and viral diseases, name examples of each, and give cause, treatment, etc.

      the purple box with a question mark just means interesting fact, if it has a pencil beside it you need to be able to draw , if it has a red dot it is asked often
