Test taking techniques

Test Taking Techniques

  • When studying any test preparation materials be sure that you are familiar with each choice under a multiple choice test question. Chances are, the question will change but the responses (i.e., A, B, C, D, etc.) will remain the same.

  • Study sample test questions out loud with someone else who is taking the same test. You may find that you learn additional strategies for taking the test and you will also become familiar with the formal language of the test.

  • Keep up on current events.

  • The History Channel offers many programs on anthropology, archeology, world history, American history and geography.

During the exam

During the Exam

  • Focus on your areas of strength and try to get as many answers correct in those areas. Spend the remaining time on the weak area(s) and again try to get as many correct.

  • In most questions, two of the responses can be eliminated using logic and any background the student knows. Eliminate unlikely answers and use logic to choose the answer.

  • Use the margins in the exam booklet to work problems or jot down what is already known.

  • Some students with test anxiety are finding relaxation techniques helpful when taking the test.

  • If you experience distractions you have the right to ask the Proctor to fix the problem:

  • Proctors should write the start time on the board - if they do not, write the time on the test book yourself.
