Test Taking Strategies

For Success on the EOCT.


Preparation
Preparation

  • It is important to prepare for a test in advance. Nothing good comes from simply “winging” anything that you do.

    • Practice

      • Practice tests and review is the best way to prepare.

      • Studying over long periods is more effective than cramming the night before a test.

Preparation

  • Get a good night’s sleep before the test. Pulling an all-nighter studying will only hurt your performance.

  • Eat a good breakfast the morning of the test. Avoid eating sugary foods. High-protein foods like scrambled eggs are often best for aiding concentration and minimizing fatigue.

  • Wear comfortable clothing.


During the test

  • Don’t panic.

  • Take your time.

        • Read all directions and questions for the section. This will give you a clear understanding of what you are expected to do.

      • Annotate:

        • Mark any questions that you have no clue about with a minus (-) next to the number. Mark any questions with content you recognize with a plus (+) next to the number.

  • Take:

    • Take your time reading passages. Always be mindful of the directions and the questions that correspond with the passage.

  • Eliminate:

    • Eliminate the easiest questions (+) by answering them. Eliminate outlandish answers from difficult questions (-).

  • React and Review:

    • React with your instincts if struggling. If you feel in your gut that an answer is right, it probably is. If time, Review
