Improving test performance really isn’t rocket science (unless you’re studying aerospace engineering). Improving test performance is actually very achievable if you’ll simply practice the seven basic study strategies listed below. While applying one or two of the study strategies will definitely improve your performance, practicing all of the strategies from the first day of class will result in much better academic and test performance.
- Take good notes
- Review notes after each class
- Use SQ3R
- Get control of your time
- Begin reviewing material (at least) a week before your test
- Test yourself
Practice good test taking strategies when preparing for your next test.
