Arrow DIT HY Topics (2 to 5 stars) and Study tips

I gathered these tips and high yield topics from DIT 2012. I made a list so I could go over them in the last few days leading to my exam. I hope you guys find this helpful. For all the topics, the number next to them correlates to the page number in Step up 3rd edition. And for some topics, it correlates to the study guide. For example, if it says 220 then the topic is in step up page 220. If it says msk 3, then the topic is under msk in the study guide.
