This review will help the information “stick” in your memory. Be a good test taker To do well on any test, you need to study enough to know the material—and you need to be a smart test taker.  Before you answer any questions, look over the entire test and make a plan. Decide how much time you will spend on each section.  Don’t spend too much time on difficult questions. Put a dot or light check mark by any question you want to come back to.  If you aren’t sure of an answer, go with your first instinct.  Check all of your answers, even the ones you know are right.
