Test Preparation

To do well on tests you must first learn the material and then review it before the test.
These are techniques to better understand your material:

Learning and Overlearning

  • Review your notes soon after class;

  • Review notes briefly before the next class;

  • Schedule some time each week for a longer review.


  • Organize your notes, texts, and assignments;

  • Estimate the hours you'll need to review materials;

  • Draw up a schedule that blocks units of time and material;

  • Test yourself on the material;

  • Finish your studying the day before the exam.
