Testing strategies for Holmes So we haven’t learned enough this week for me to make notes due to the test so I have decided to make a list of study skills and test taking habits that I used for this last test to make an A. Study skills o GO TO SI o Go to every single SI session, every one. o If you can’t go still do the worksheet and then go to Sam’s office hours to go over it or talk to a friend who went. o Take good lecture notes, and write down EVERYTHING he shows on the screen o Every weekend make a word document with a compilation of lecture notes and SI notes, see where they overlap and study those points the most, or buy mine. o Find a friend and take turns teaching each other the information, that’s the most effective way of learning material. o Start studying 30min to 1 hour every day a week before the test o Don’t waste time doing chapter outlines or even reading the whole chapter, if you need clarity on a topic Dr. Holmes has talked about then reference the book. The book gives you more information than you need! o Nuemonics are your best friend o Attend the test review SI Session and stay the whole time, he gives out important information and questions he knows will be on the test o Get a good night sleep before the test, don’t stay up until 4 am cramming, if you start studying a week before the test you shouldn’t feel the need to cram anyways o The basement of moody library is a great place to study o Create your own study guide using your notes, or buy mine a few days before the test o Quiz and test yourself on information Testing stratiegies o Dr. Holmes is tricky and tries to throw you off with one word in an answer that makes the whole answer wrong o Read carefully o When you think you have the right answer write out why it’s the right answer in a few words o Circle the words in answer that make it a bad choice o Go through and read the test twice. o Cross off wrong answers as soon as you know they are wrong o Pay attention to adjectives (in the question and answers), not, always, never, except, and all but. o If at least 2 answers in a question are right all of the above is an appropriate choice even if you are not sure about the rest.
