    3. Test preparation:
    Revise the active vocabulary and grammar of the unit
    When you write a paragraph on the Nikon D7100 in class, please, remember that
    it oughtn't to exceed 200 words
    you are not supposed to COPY the topic sentence from the model paragraph; modify it according to your taste, but remember the genre: a short review for a photography magazine
    the concluding sentece is to recommend/not recommend the camera to a certain group of customers/photographers
    the body of the paragraph should cover 3-4 design elenents: e.g. appearance; image quality; ability to operate in various conditions; versatilty (can be used for many purposes); don't jump from one featute to another and back: the magazine does not have space and the reader doesn't have time to spare on a long and chaotically written review
    you are to use 5-8 appropriate linking phrases to guide the reader throughout the paragraph
    the camera name must be preceded by THE (defininte article), whether you use the full name or part of it
