In the book, there are several problems in which a species acts as both an oxidizing agent and a reducing agent. Are we going to be responsible for knowing this for the test? I don't remember going over this in lecture.

It's most likely a concentration cell, which we went over in class. The lower concentration is the reducing agent (is oxidized) and the higher concentration is the oxidizing agent (is reduced).

Also, these cells have very low potential in comparison to other voltaic cells.
