Doing A Post-Exam Review

  Just as an athlete analyzes the results of a game in an effort to improve his or her skills, you too should conduct a post-exam review to see why you got particular questions wrong. Specifically, you should try to determine if you got the wrong answer because you:

  1. Read the question incorrectly or carelessly.
  2. Did not properly think your way through your answer before looking at the choices available.
  3. Incorrectly read the possible choices offered.
  4. Simply did not know this particular material.
  5. Made a careless mistake such as writing down the wrong answer number on the test form.

  By carefully assessing the nature of your incorrect responses on an exam, you can help prevent similar mistakes from occurring on subsequent tests, and thus become a better overall test taker.
