=5 Tips for Test=
* Here are some easy tips for doing better in tests. Keep them in mind when you get ready for the next one. *
Tip 1: Gauge your time!
Unless it's a take home test, you only have so much time to get it done. Look at the marks for each question. Figure out the time to give each answer.
Tip 2: Know the rules!
Ask your teacher about the rules for the test. Can you use a calculator? bring notes? talk to friends? Do you get penalized for wrong answers? Are you better off guessing or leaving a blank?
Tip 3: Plan your attack!
Often its better to take a minute or two to think about HOW you're going to answer the question.
Tip 4: Fill the Space!
If there are you five lines for an answer or a big space on the sheet, fill the lines or the space. They give you an idea how big an answer your teacher expect.
Tip 5: Check your answer!
In math, work backwards to make sure your answer is right. In language arts (L.A) proofread to make sure your spelling and punctuation are correct.
