Successful Test Taking Strategies
- Be sure to find out ahead of time what material the test will cover.
- Find out what type of test it will be (multiple choice, true false, short answer, essay).
- Study in a place that is free of distractions, and study at a time when you are alert and not hungry or sleepy.
- Don't wait until the last minute to study! Short daily study sessions are better than one long session the night before the test.
- Set a goal for each study period. If you are being tested on three chapters, set up four study sessions, one for each chapter and one for a review of the main ideas in all three chapters.
- Repetition is key! Read and reread your class notes and the relevant chapters in the textbook.
- While you are reviewing your notes, cover them up periodically and summarize them out loud. Pretend that you are explaining the material to someone else.
- Make a timeline of important dates or the order of events.
- Do any practice exams or study sheets provided by the teacher. These will help you focus your study session and give you confidence.
- Get help from the teacher if you do not understand something.
NOTE: Get a good night’s sleep, eat a hearty breakfast, and wear comfortable clothing. Bring a sweater or light jacket in case the testing room is too cool. Then you can put on another layer of clothing and not focus on being too cold.
