#### How to Prepare for an Exam?

Wed Jun 28, 2017 2:11 am
Step 1 :> Preparing to Study
(a) Start studying early. Give yourself more than enough time to review the material that was covered in class. You might want to gauge how soon to start studying by how much material you need to review.
(b) Read through the entirety of your notes that will be on the exam. It will refresh your memory of the material and help you remember what you learned.
(c) Get some good notes. If you’re not a good note taker, or if there are “holes” in your notes, then ask a friend if you can copy his or her notes. Good notes can make all the difference when you’re studying.
(d) Ask your teacher about the test material. One of the easiest ways to begin your studying process is to find out what is on the test directly from your teacher.

Step 2 :> Reviewing the Information
(a) Re-read your notes. This time re-read your notes for understanding. In other words, you are going to study your notes. Start with the most basic information.
(b) Take noes whilte you study. Yes, take even more notes. You can highlight and underline the information as well, but writing the information down really helps you retain it better.
(c) Review your syllabus. The syllabus is an outline of everything that you should have learned over the course of the class. It’s a good place to start to understand major ideas and topics that you should be learning from the class.
(d) Write down the major topics and themes that you pulled out of the syllabus. Then, go through your notes to see if you have any notes at all on those topics. Once again, if you don’t, you should ask someone for notes on those topics, and re-read the sections in the book pertaining to those topics.
(e) Review study guides and sections. In some books, each chapter has a short review or summary. This is a great place to quickly review and get a gist of a concept. Of course, if you have no idea what the summary is referring to or you need more details to jog your memory, refer to the study guide in the back of the book.
(f) Re-read important selections of the textbook. All of the titled sections of the book from your syllabus should be re-read so that you can pull out important information.

Step 3 :> Preparing for the Exam
(a) Make flash cards. After you have taken notes from studying all of your materials including the book and your notes, use that information to make flash cards. (Grab an index card, or cut paper into squares to use as a flashcard.) Turn statements into questions.
(b) Quiz yourself. Once everything is written down on flashcards, quiz yourself with the cards. Keep reviewing the questions that you get wrong until you get them right.
(c) Do practice questions. This is especially helpful for subjects such as math. Practice doing the questions in the book that you were assigned for homework. Do extra questions in the back of the book. Re-do questions that you got wrong, and try to figure out why you got them wrong. Do practice questions until you feel more comfortable with subject matter.

Thanks for the good advice. But I want to know how it will better prepare for practical assignments. Do you know any resources? thank you.
Timely lessons, work on memorization techniques, solving organizational issues, the ability to create the right environment and motivate oneself - that's what is needed for success!!!!!

These tips are really beneficial! I like the idea of making "flash cards" a lot. But for real, when I start taking notes it takes a lot of time. I don't know how people at first make notes of everything from the subject and then have time for learning and reviewing that. I would also like to say that I don't waste time as usual. Formerly, I wasn't concentrated at all, but then I organized myself and my time as well and that is not a problem anymore. So, about making notes faster. Are there any hacks? Or maybe the problem is in my desire of making everything accurately and perfectly?

Good piece of advice.
Preparing flash cards was always my best trick for memorizing material. But when we're talking about any English test, you shouldn't forget about essay writing part.
Obviously, here you'll need more practice than theory. I used to write my own essay and order same one from professional writers. After comparing a couple or two I found my weak points and improved my skills.
If that's overcomlicated for you, you may ask same writers just to proofread your work, so you'll see the right direction where to move. I found trustworthy writers at https://copycrafter.net/.
I think that is a sure way to improve your writing skills. At least it helped me and some of my friends.

Agree with you about "starting studying early". I am the person who does everything at the last moment. That fact has never helped me But in fact, the more time you have - the more material you can learn accurately and the calmer you are. Often people do nothing and then start to panic instead of learning the rest of the time. So, the main idea of the preparational process is to use all the time you have, to make your preparation structured, to refresh regularly everything that was learned already and to keep calm all the time. Good luck to everyone!
