  1. HOW TO WRITE AN OPEN BOOK TEST http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=writing+a+test&hl=en&sa=X&biw=1366&bih=653&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&tbnid=AMnnJEPohDghPM:&imgrefurl=http://the-writing-bug.blogspot.com/2010_09_01_archive.html&docid=JZbQLJWBPe1c1M&imgurl=http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_5Nwz7_ZCGKs/TIewQTWuzaI/AAAAAAAAA_g/4hvPheUNeOg/s1600/writing.jpg&w=1600&h=1082&ei=bL5OT9KzHara0QHnneHSAg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=373&vpy=323&dur=759&hovh=185&hovw=273&tx=132&ty=102&sig=117930308719292859020&page=2&tbnh=136&tbnw=185&start=20&ndsp=24&ved=1t:429,r:13,s:20

  2. 1. Prepare as if it were a closed book test you were writing • Open book exams are typically more difficult than closed book exams. • You should spend as much time, if not more time, preparing for open book tests as you would for closed book tests. http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=writing+a+test&start=97&hl=en&sa=X&biw=1366&bih=653&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&tbnid=2ioAU__Tnve6XM:&imgrefurl=http://fermentation.typepad.com/fermentation/2008/03/the-persuasive.html&docid=fUui6O7ZbiJeWM&imgurl=http://fermentation.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2008/03/06/childishwriting.jpg&w=342&h=287&ei=p8NOT7PmAorY0QG7kN3fAg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=942&vpy=336&dur=35&hovh=206&hovw=245&tx=132&ty=133&sig=117930308719292859020&page=5&tbnh=144&tbnw=125&ndsp=27&ved=1t:429,r:25,s:97

  3. 2. Familiarize yourself with your book Most open book tests are longer and more involved than closed book tests and consequently time is of the essence. If you have to look up the answer to each question in your book you'll never get done with your test in the time alloted. Make sure you are familiar with the book, relevant materials as well as the subject matter before you take an open book test. http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=writing+a+test&hl=en&sa=X&biw=1366&bih=653&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&tbnid=SNQLF_2qWgPlaM:&imgrefurl=http://edwardcheever.wordpress.com/2010/03/22/god-of-war-health-care-lives-through-a-textbook-beating-over-spring-break/&docid=HLZa8_KYFW6gsM&imgurl=http://edwardcheever.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/shortstory.jpg&w=347&h=346&ei=s-FOT4r6G-LW0QGawsDnDQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=852&vpy=318&dur=24&hovh=224&hovw=225&tx=109&ty=156&sig=117930308719292859020&page=1&tbnh=155&tbnw=163&start=0&ndsp=20&ved=1t:429,r:17,s:0

  4. 3. Create a cheat sheet Write down all important dates, formulas and key information on a separate sheet of paperor in the margin of your test so that you don't have to search through your book for these items. http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=writing+a+test&hl=en&sa=X&biw=1366&bih=653&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&tbnid=SioVQ6oo1VEhEM:&imgrefurl=http://www.policetest.info/POLICE_WRITTEN_TEST.htm&docid=ewpexcrN9WQbZM&imgurl=http://www.policetest.info/bilde.jpg&w=494&h=311&ei=s-FOT4r6G-LW0QGawsDnDQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=826&vpy=4&dur=33&hovh=178&hovw=283&tx=143&ty=78&sig=117930308719292859020&page=3&tbnh=120&tbnw=190&start=46&ndsp=25&ved=1t:429,r:23,s:46

  5. 4. Review work completed in class • When preparing for an open book test, focus on familiarizing yourself with the main ideas and concepts covered in your class AND make sure you know where each is located in your book. • At first, don't get too caught up in learning all the details -- you can do this later. http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=writing+a+test&start=198&hl=en&sa=X&biw=1366&bih=653&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&tbnid=dknIsB14YxLBkM:&imgrefurl=http://www.classroomchronicles.net/2010/05/13/testing-in-the-primary-classroom-naplan/&docid=eqBgds6IpEVxGM&imgurl=http://www.classroomchronicles.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/pencilsinside.jpg&w=369&h=425&ei=kuhOT9X8IebW0QGl86S6DQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=524&vpy=92&dur=776&hovh=241&hovw=209&tx=93&ty=135&sig=117930308719292859020&page=9&tbnh=143&tbnw=124&ndsp=25&ved=1t:429,r:2,s:198

  6. 5. Use post it notes to mark pages • Using sticky notes: • mark the pages in your book where major concepts and ideas are addressed • highly important points in each major section so that you can find them again easily during your test • make notes in your book that will help you to recall information and concepts during your test Protein Sources and RDA http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=sticky+notes&hl=en&biw=1366&bih=610&tbm=isch&tbnid=tVCOTkZybjUSWM:&imgrefurl=http://wooden-product.en.made-in-china.com/product/SbHnPQXzhuWK/China-Self-Adhesive-Sticky-Notes.html&docid=tH0lMw7IjCkSrM&imgurl=http://image.made-in-china.com/2f0j00SvhaPQjDbHoK/Self-Adhesive-Sticky-Notes.jpg&w=293&h=300&ei=A-pOT4OtKcmH0QHIxIXgDQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=448&vpy=253&dur=428&hovh=227&hovw=222&tx=110&ty=118&sig=117930308719292859020&page=2&tbnh=137&tbnw=134&start=23&ndsp=28&ved=1t:429,r:16,s:23

  7. 6. Answer the questions you know first ! • A very useful strategy for taking open book tests is to answer all the questions you know the answer to first. • Once you've answer all the questions you know the answer too go back and start answering the questions that require you to look in your book. This will ensure that you're able to complete as many questions as possible before the test is over. http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=answering+questions&hl=en&sa=X&biw=1366&bih=610&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&tbnid=bKM4TSOBrH_aEM:&imgrefurl=http://thetyee.ca/News/2010/06/30/AskAwayQuits/&docid=xs3L_V7QX0cNpM&imgurl=http://thetyee.cachefly.net/News/2010/06/29/question-mark-keyboard.jpg&w=300&h=237&ei=xutOT_veIunf0QH1qOXhDQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=617&vpy=181&dur=166&hovh=189&hovw=240&tx=102&ty=91&sig=117930308719292859020&page=3&tbnh=131&tbnw=158&start=50&ndsp=27&ved=1t:429,r:3,s:50
