Know the test format

Don’t forget to ask your professor what you can expect for the layout of the exam. Knowing the format will help you to study. If the exam is focused on multiple choice and fill in the blank, you should practice flash cards and know the vocabulary, facts and dates. If the exam is more essay-based questions, practice writing essays about important topics that you have learned throughout the semester. Also be sure to know if the exam is cumulative or not.

Take into account all of your exams, spending more time on the ones that are more challenging or that you need to score higher on.

Get a good night’s sleep

Not only do you not want to fall asleep during your exam, but a good night of sleep will help retention of information.

Manage your time

Asking the professor in advance how many questions to expect can help you to prepare how much time you can allocate to each question. Spend more time on questions that are worth more points. Don’t overthink the easy questions — that will eat up your time. Wear a watch so you don’t have to search for a clock in the room or be tempted to look at your phone. If you are done early, cover up your answers and rework the problems to see if you get the same outcome.

Go back to the tough questions

While you have been answering the easy questions, your subconscious brain has been thinking about the hard questions and trying to solve them. Circle any key words in the questions that you are still working to figure out. This will help your brain to focus on the main point of the questions and hopefully help you recall the correct answer.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
