For es- say tests, it’s important to understand the big picture and know main points and key facts. For multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank tests, you need to know more detailed information. u Have all of your reading done ahead of time. “I try to get all of the reading done a couple of days before the test. Then I just need to skim and review.” Greg u Pay particularly close attention in class the day before a test. This is when teachers often go over information you need to know. u If your textbook has review questions, know all of the answers. Also, go through your textbook and make sure that you know the meanings of all the words in bold and italic print. u If a teacher gives you a review sheet, study it until you know everything on it. Then use it to come up with questions that might be on the test. u You really know something if you can explain it in your own words. Try teaching material to yourself in front of a mirror. u Review often and review out loud. When you review, you move information from your short-term memory into your long-term memory. Review is the key to learning and remembering anything! u Write down any names, dates, formulas, and/or facts you need to remember on index cards. Take these cards with you the day of the test and go over them as often as you can. Know how to memorize and remember information. u Write down whatever it is you want to memorize, and then stare at it. Close your eyes and try to see it in your mind. Say it, and look at it again. Do this until you know it. u Use flashcards to memorize vocabulary words, facts, and lists. “If you have a lot to memorize, spread it out over a period of time, and just keep going over and over it.” Brad
