Feeling prepared is so important to successful testing. Preparation must start with a solid understanding of the test itself. You must ask two important questions. First, what information will be tested and at what level of detail? Should I know general concepts or specific facts? Second, how will I be asked to demonstrate my understanding? Will I be asked for written or oral responses, long or short answer? Next, review should align with your most comfortable style of learning. Auditory learners may compose jingles. Visual learners may review power point presentations. Tactile learners may take additional written notes. Finally, relax. Older students may want to think about connecting dots between subjects. Young students may just want to watch their favorite TV show the evening before the big test.
