General test preparation

| Test preparation | December 8, 2011

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
      See the Guides on Taking notes in Lectures
      (and Taking notes from a textbook!)
    • 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
