Are you worried about your upcoming ACT or SAT exam? Don’t sweat it, you are not alone. Seriously, every high school student probably feels just as nervous (if not more nervous) than you.
Just grind it out as best you can; however, respect your energy. You may wake up in the morning and need to go on a jog, do something fun, call your family, go to the spa, or do other things to take your mind away. Taking time to disconnect from your study is VERY important.
Math problems in standardized tests are almost always in the objective multiple choice question form. The Grid-in questions in the SAT Exam are an exception. The usual format includes a description of problem with one or more useful piece of information. A question statement follows the given information. Then the problem is followed by 4 or 5 answer choices.
Tracking. It’s hard to have a good plan in place until you know how you are going to perform. SAT Prep classes can help you track your progress and asses your strengths and weaknesses. Tracking your scores and recording your performance is absolutely essential to achieve your highest SAT score.
Check through each section and note the parts you do know and the parts you don’t know or are unsure of. Try to allocate rough marks to these areas. Sometimes they may be on the exam paper itself. If not, use your knowledge of marking schemes in your Best SAT Prep to estimate marks. Do a rough calculation for each question you are considering.
Taking your pet out for a nice walk or run will keep the blood flowing, give you fresh energy, change up the scene, and provide some companionship and connection.
Studying in a group helps if each member is studying for the same examination. They can help each other out if any doubts crop out and discuss the problems together. If solving the problems together, you can easily remember in your mind what you have learnt. In group study, they can keep each other motivated as well. Ensure that it is a small group of people, as too many people can just be a hindrance to problem solving.
When answering difficult questions – do the art of “elimination”. Take away the ones that are irrelevant to the choices, until your down with a final answer. Time is a factor that will affect you heavily. Mange it properly.
