1. Check your computer. There's nothing more discouraging than turning your computer on to take a pre-scheduled test and discovering your equipment is not working or you have an access problem.
2. Find a good spot to take the test. Make sure you've turned off all distractions -- TV, phone, social media, and all notifications. Get the kids and pets settled ahead of time or find someone to take care of them so that you can proceed undistracted.
3. Make sure you understand the test guidelines. Check and recheck the test time and date. Can you take the exam anytime within a certain window of time? How long will you have to complete the test?
4. If available, take practice exams. Ask your instructor for a practice exam and take it. Ask for any additional recommendations for preparing for the test.
5. Study. Even if your exam is "open book," you need to be familiar with the material so you don't waste time hunting for it. By having a good mastery of the material, you can organize what you think you will need to know in study notes and in your mind so it's more easily accessible when you're answering exam questions.
6. Practice good time management while taking the test. If you get stumped on a question, move on to the next one. You can come back and work on the questions that require more thought later.
7. Use logic when test taking. If you don't know the answer to a multiple choice question, start eliminating. Usually a few of the answers will be obviously incorrect, and may be similar in content or just don't seem to fit.
8. Keep track of time. If you have limited time to take the test, set a watch or clock to alert you 10 minutes or so before your deadline so you will know how much time you have left to complete the test.
9. Technical problems? Don't despair, but do take screen shots and notify your instructor right away.
10. Check and recheck. Give yourself time to check and recheck your work before you submit it. Make sure all questions are answered, whether they're short answer or multiple choice.

1. Stick to a Study Schedule. If you're having trouble studying regularly, creating a study schedule can be a huge help. Doing something regularly helps your mind get used to it.
2. Start Studying Early and Study for Shorter Periods. Some people can cram for several hours the night before the test and still get a good grade. However, this is rarer than you may hope.
3. Remove Distractions. When you're studying, especially if it's for a subject you don't enjoy, it can be extremely tempting to take "quick breaks" from your work.
4. Reward Yourself When You Hit a Milestone. To make studying a little more fun, give yourself a small reward whenever you hit a study milestone. For example, you might get to eat a piece of candy for every 25 flashcards you test yourself on, or get to spend 10 minutes on your phone for every hour you spend studying.
5. Rewrite the Material in Your Own Words. It can be easy to get lost in a textbook and look back over a page, only to realize you don't remember anything about what you just read.
6. Make Flashcards. Flashcards are a popular study tool for good reason! They're easy to make, easy to carry around, easy to pull out for a quick study session, and they're a more effective way of studying than just reading through pages of notes.
7. Teach the Material to Someone Else. Teaching someone else is a great way to organize the information you've been studying and check your grasp of it.
8. Make Your Own Study Guides. Even if your teacher provides you with study guides, we highly recommend making your own study materials. Just making the materials will help the information sink into your mind, and when you make your own study guides, you can customize them to the way you learn best, whether that's flashcards, images, charts etc.
9. Know Causes and Effects. It's easy and tempting to simply review long lists of dates of important events, but this likely won't be enough for you to do well on a history test, especially if it has any writing involved.
10. Make Your Own Timelines. Sometimes you need to know a lot of dates for a history test. In these cases, don't think passively reading your notes is enough.

1. Know the test format. Ask your teacher or call a friend, but you do need to know if you are preparing for multiple choice or essay questions.
2. Collect all homework, worksheets, handouts (You kept all of these, didn’t you?) , and notes covering the tested material. Create two groups of papers by separating quizzes and graded assignments.
3. Open your textbook to the tested sections and “read” the pictures, graphs, and diagrams; look at each one, read the captions, and ask yourself, “What is this picture?
4. Take a short, 2-4 minute study break every 30 minutes. Get a drink, do a few jumping jacks, or grab a short snack to refresh your brain.
5. Review your packet of quizzes and graded assignments. These are gold! Pay close attention to all questions you originally had wrong. Figure out the correct answers and make sure you understand your errors.
6. Create a 5×8-inch “cheat-sheet.” Certainly, I am not suggesting you actually cheat, but creating a cheat-sheet as you study is a great learning process.
7. Review your remaining handouts and notes. First, look at the visuals on these pages. Then, read the headings and sub-headings on each handout and turn them into questions.
8. Read your “cheat-sheet.” Now that you have reviewed all of your study resources, you must memorize important items, such as definitions, formulas, important dates, “the five key elements of…” or “the three most important things about…” Create potential test questions from the information on your cheat-sheet, then answer them.
9. Get a good night’s sleep. Eat a good breakfast. Drink water to keep your brain hydrated.
10. Read your cheat-sheet first thing in the morning. Read it again on the bus and just before your test. Then, PUT IT AWAY (it’s not a real cheat-sheet) and relax…You’ll do great!

1. Know Your Starting Point. One of the most important factors in test preparation is identifying your subject matter strengths and weaknesses so you understand what you most need to study.
2. Make a Study Schedule. We've all heard the expression “Practice makes perfect,” and that's always the intent when it comes to studying. The more you practice your skills and review the materials, the more likely you are to ace the test.
3. Make a Study Plan. Of course, deciding how to study for a test means identifying what you'll study. Use the baseline from your pre-tests to make a plan to learn and review material before test day.
4. Track Your Progress. Knowing where you are in your study process is just as important as knowing your baseline scores. Monitor your progress by regularly taking practice exams and comparing your scores to your previous ones.
5. Practice Healthy Test Day Habits. ​It's just as important to prepare for test day as it is to prepare for your test. This means ensuring you get a good night's sleep, wake up on time, eat a healthy breakfast, and make it to your test with time to spare.

1. Take good notes. Yep, being prepared actually plays a big part in studying for a test. The more thorough you can be when taking notes during class, the better — it’ll help you remember key facts that were discussed and minimize the amount of time you have to spend re-reading textbook material you already went over in class.
2. Try “chunking” Studying for an exam can be overwhelming, especially if you don’t feel 100 percent prepared. As such, your natural inclination might just be to sit down and try to shove as much information on as many topics as possible into your brain.
3. Focus, focus, focus. Sorry to break it to you but, according to the Cleveland Clinic, we actually all kinda suck at multitasking. In fact, research shows that a teensy 2.5 percent of people are able to multitask efficiently.
4. Try some white noise. According to a 2017 study in Scientific Reports, “listening to white noise may improve some aspects of cognitive performance in individuals with lower attention.”
5. Make sure you’re actively engaged. Sure, reading over the material that might be on your test is good. But to actually learn the information, you need to be actively engaged.
6. Say it out loud. Another helpful hack for making information stick is to speak it. A 2017 study out of the University of Waterloo found that reading text aloud helps seal words into your long-term memory.
7. Try not to procrastinate. Hey, we get it! Whether you just realized you had a test or chose to ignore that fact, sometimes waiting until the 11th hour is inevitable.
8. Online study tools. In addition to adopting the smart (see what we did there?) study strategies above, you can maximize your studying mojo by using readily available resources.

1. Start Early. Being prepared for a test starts with taking class seriously. Try not to miss any classes or lectures. While it helps to be in the classroom, it’s only useful if you pay close attention.
2. Do Your Homework. Homework is provided to reiterate and absorb the concepts from the lesson. Don’t copy others or skip it. When you do your homework, you are studying.
3. Try a Planning Approach. Rather than piling all your studying up at the last minute, try to plan ahead. Try to hone study skills and techniques to create good habits.
4. Use Practice Tests and Exams. Many teachers will provide you with old exams to practice. Sometimes, you can even find old exams online. Rework these problems and go over the homework and notes.
5. Use Flashcards. As mentioned above, math does mirror other subjects in the fact that there are concepts and vocabulary terms to memorize. Along with these, you must often know formulas.
6. Practice Online. Leverage all types of resources. There are websites specifically dedicated to subjects in math, such as study.com. Other sites that can be of assistance include Khan Academy and YouTube.
7. Try a Study Group. Oftentimes, you may not understand a concept that your friend does. In these cases, it’s helpful to set up study groups and work alongside friends.
8. Set Rewards. Staying focused and studying in advance deserves rewards. As such, you can set up your own rewards systems based on what you like to do. For example, if you want to save up for a special gift, place a monetary reward in a jar every time you complete a homework assignment.
9. Get Good Sleep. Just as important as studying is getting enough sleep. There is research that suggests that memories become stable during sleep. Additionally, being deprived of sleep can detrimentally affect focus and attention.
10. Learn from Mistakes. After you get a graded test back, go over the mistakes and understand how to fix them. Since math concepts are known to build upon one another, it’s important you understand what was done wrong so that as the concepts repeat and build, you know what to do next time.

1. Set a Major Goal. My most important tip for anyone attending or considering an online degree is to stay on task. It’s understandable that sometimes things happen in life that are unforeseen and pull us away from our studies.
2. Treat Study Like a Job. Make school your top priority every day and you can't fail! Always remember, study is your work. Consciously choose to show up, absorb wonderful content available to you, schedule in assessments, lectures, tasks, and really set and keep those boundaries.
3. Make a Study Plan. Make a study plan! At the beginning of each term I take the time to plan readings and work on assignments. Although I regularly adjust the plan if necessary, it keeps me on track.
4. Manage Time Carefully. Set a schedule and stick with it to keep you structured. People generally do better in a structured environment. So why not make it even easier for yourself?
5. Have Dedicated Study Blocks. First and foremost, there needs to be time set aside each day, without interruptions, to fully focus on your work. Make time for your schooling.
6. Find a Quiet Space. Pick a time throughout the day when either everyone is away from home, pick a corner of the house where you can relax and study. Create a space of peace.
7. Eliminate Distractions. Allow quiet time to focus. My time is in the morning before the kids wake up is when my mind is awake, fresh to new ideas and most creative.
8. Limit Social Media. Sure, it's fun to get lost in the black hole of Facebook, but when it comes to getting a college degree, that blue and white "thumbs up" gets shoved to the wayside for studying!
9. Use Online Resources. Use any of the student resources that are available. For instance, your college has an online library which offers sources for assignments.
10. Break Down Tasks. Having a detailed calendar of what you will accomplish each day will definitely give you the base to achieve your goals. I have found the best way to study is to break the information down.

2. Study when sleepy. Share on Pinterest. Bedtime stories are for kids. Instead of reading the Berenstain Bears, try studying for a few minutes right before hitting the hay.
3. Space it out. A new learning technique called “spaced repetition” involves breaking up information into small chunks and reviewing them consistently over a long period of time.
4. Create a mnemonic device. Turn the details you need to remember into an easy-to-recite acronym. For example, remember the order of mathematic operations PEMDAS (parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction) with this catchy mnemonic device: Please (P) excuse (E) my (M) dear (D) Aunt (A) Sally (S).
5. Write it down. Put those third-grade penmanship lessons to good use. Research suggests that we store information more securely when we write it by hand than when we type it on a computer keyboard.
6. Put yourself to the test. Quizzing yourself may be one of the best ways to prepare for the real deal. Get into the routine of practicing with a cheat sheet (notes) and then without it.
7. Shout it out. The dual action of seeing and hearing information at the same time helps seal it into your memory. So shout those notes out loud! We just can’t guarantee you won’t get thrown out of the library.
8. Come together (right now) Group work doesn’t fly with everyone, but for those who benefit from a little team effort, a study group is the way to go. Pick a few studious pals and get together every few days to review the material.
9. Walk backward. It might sound strange, but a backward walk is like hitting your brain’s rewind button. In one study, people who walked backward were better able to remember a video they’d watched than those who walked forward or stood still.
10. Switch it up. Don’t stick to one topic. Instead, study a bunch of different material in one sitting. This technique helps prepare you to use the right strategy for finding the solution to a problem.
11. Treat yo’self! A healthy holiday cookie, a walk around the block, 5 minutes on Twitter — whatever floats your boat. Knowing there’s a little reward waiting at the end of a few more pages makes it easier to beat procrastination while slogging through a semester’s worth of notes.

1. How to Prepare for Success 1. Set a Schedule. “Oh, I’ll get to it soon” isn’t a valid study strategy. Rather, you have to be intentional about planning set study sessions.
2. Create Your Perfect Study Space 1. Pick a Good Place to Study. There’s a delicate balance when it comes to the best study spot: You need a place that’s comfortable without being so relaxing that you end up falling asleep.
3. Pick a Study Method That Works for You. Mindlessly reading through your notes or textbooks isn’t an effective method of studying; it doesn’t help you process the information.
4. Effective Study Skills 1. Highlight Key Concepts. Looking for the most important information as you read helps you stay engaged with the material.
5. How to Study More Efficiently 1. Take Regular Breaks. Study sessions will be more productive if you allow yourself to take planned breaks. Consider a schedule of 50 minutes spent working followed by a 10-minute break.
6. How to Study for Tests 1. Study for Understanding, Not Just for the Test. Cramming the night before a big test usually involves trying to memorize information long enough to be able to regurgitate it the next morning.
7. Memory Improvement Techniques 1. Study Right Before Bed. Although you shouldn’t pull all-nighters, studying right before bedtime can be a great idea.
8. Top 10 Study Hacks Backed by Science 1. Grab a Coffee. Drinking coffee (or your preferred high-octane beverage) while you study may help keep you alert so you don’t doze off mid-session.
9. The Best Study Apps 1. iStudiez Pro Legend. Scheduling study time is a must, and iStudiez Pro Legend lets you put study sessions, classes and assignments on your calendar.
