# What is meant by 'modified forward path' in this op-amp problem?

What is a modified forward path?

In the practise exam paper I'm doing I'm given this circuit and asked to draw an equivalent circuit of the 'modified forward path amplifier'. I'm told that it should include all resistive loadings of the source, load and feedback network but should ignore actual feedback gain.

I've looked through my course notes and google, but haven't been able to find out what a modified forward path is.

Conventionally, an inverting amplifier configuration has $V^+$ grounded and the input signal applied to $R_1$. The circuit, above, is a variation of this.
