Test Taking - Acquiring Good Study Habits

Acquiring Good Study Habits
Setting aside time to study only helps if you actually take the time to study. You need to be disciplined.

Wake up early.

Read the text. Take practice quizzes. Reread the text to absorb important points that may need review. Retake practice quizzes. Aim to achieve an average score of 85 to 90% consistently.

Study the charts and graphs.

Take notes.

Copy those notes over so that they are organized and concise. (It helps to pretend you are writing a study outline for somebody else.)

Make, and then use, flash cards. (For many they are a tried and true study aid.)

Pace yourself. Take a rest when you have to, but remember that a 10-minute break lasts 10 minutes. Have the willpower to get back to work. Tips For Taking The Test
