The first Unit test will cover Chapters 1-3 (Brick) but has far fewer questions on Exploration-Ch. 1 than Colonization (majority = European and English specifically 13 original colonies)ch.2 & 3 and primarily just causes and effects for the French and Indian war in Ch. 4 if any info at all.  You will not read ch. 4 in  the brick!
