Tip 1: Gauge your time!
Unless it is 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 guessing or leaving a blank?
Tip 3: Plan your attack!
Often it is 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 is five lines for an answer, or a big space on the sheet, fill the lines of the space. They give you an idea how big an answer your teacher expects.
Tip 5: Check your answer!
In math work backwards to make sure your answer is right. In language arts, proofread to make sure your spelling and punctuation are correct.
REMEMBER TO STUDY FOR YOUR EXAMS!
And good luck to everyone(:
