How to Prepare for a Test
Here are some ideas to try:
Make flash cards.
Make your own mini-test. Create questions you think will be asked on the test (or complete a practice test that is provided).
Have mom, dad, or a sibling make up a quiz for you or ask you questions.
Rewrite or retype your notes. (Great keyboarding practice!)
Read your notes into a tape recorder and listen to it.
Create a venn diagram to compare/contrast ideas.
Create a sequence
Create a web to show main ideas and important details that you can remember.
Create a cause/effect chart.
Pretend you are the teacher and teach a real or pretend student all that you know about a topic.
Read over your notes. This is better than nothing, but doesn’t work very well for most students.
