GENERAL TEST PREPARATION

General test preparation
To do well on tests you must first learn the material,
and then review it before the test.
These are techniques to better understand your material:

Learning

■Take good notes in your class lectures and textbooks
■Review your notes soon after class/lecture
■Review notes briefly before the next class
■Schedule some time at the end of the week for a longer review
Reviewing

■Take good notes
about as your teacher tells you what will be on the test
■Organize your notes, texts, and assignments
according to what will be on the test
■Estimate the hours you'll need to review materials
■Draw up a schedule
that blocks units of time and material
■Test yourself on the material
■Finish your studying the day before the exam
