How much of Lewis acids and bases do we have to know for the midterm?

We cover up until the end of 2C (7th edition), or 3.11 (6th edition). Wednesday's lecture (last day of material that will be on tomorrow's midterm) covered expanded valence shells, radicals, Lewis acids and bases, and coordinate covalent bonds. Lewis acids and bases, broadly speaking, are defined in terms of electron donors and acceptors - Lewis acids being electron pair acceptors, and Lewis bases being electron pair donors, which combine to form a coordinate covalent bond.
