any other worthwhile skill, becoming a good exam
taker requires practice. Think of it as analogous to
a dancer, who wouldnt consider performing
without substantial amounts of practice doing the
specific moves in his or her routine. Similarly, you
should think of an exam as your
performance, and you should practice
doing the necessary maneuvers to think through
questions that you will be expected to execute during
As a general rule, you
should practice taking tests to the point that when
the real examination comes around, the process of
thinking carefully and clearly is second nature.
Practice tests supplied by the professor and
questions of your own design can all accomplish this
goal. Furthermore, by practicing the test-taking
process early and often in your studying, you will
help yourself learn the subject matter in exactly the
context that the professor wants.
