Exam Preparation 101

We know how difficult it can be to prepare for an exam; we have been there and we have succeeded. So can you. Here are a few tips to prepare the day of the exam. We highly recommend taking a Water Grades exam preparation course prior to the course.

When you are preparing to take a test, you need to begin weeks in advance so that you do not feel rushed or stressed on exam day. Almost every student knows that sinking feeling in the pit of their stomach when they have not put in the time they need to do well on the test. By planning, you can schedule your time so that you will be ready to shine on test day.

As you study the material, you need to focus without daydreaming. Even if you think you know it, take notes. The physical act of writing down what you read will help you better remember the material. Jot down the important points to keep track of the most relevant information. Instead of waiting until the last minute to cram or staying up all night before a test, spend time each day reviewing the information. This will also improve your ability to remember what you have studied on test day.

Eat something before the test, especially if you have been drinking caffeine. Caffeine can make you nervous, and food will help calm your jitters. It will also help your brain stay alert. A combination of protein and carbohydrates often provides a good balance to help you focus. Cheese and crackers, peanut butter and celery, or yogurt with berries can be solid choices.

For multiple-choice questions, read the question and then think of the answer. When you know the right answer, you won’t be confused by the other choices. Cross out any answers that don’t make sense. Look at each option before marking your answer. If you don’t know an answer, you can guess. Generally, you should go with your first impression on the answer. If you see an answer expressed positively, it is more likely to be correct than an answer that is stated negatively.

You might feel anxiety or stress when taking a test. You can cut way down on nervousness by preparing well before the exam. Stay optimistic about the exam. Exercise to help eliminate stress. Rest well the night before the big day. Chewing gum during the test might also help you relax. Answer all the questions you know first so you feel confident about answering the more difficult questions.
