Study resources + tips for high school exams
I ran today. Even if it was to the mailbox (at the end of the driveway), I ran. I’m out of shape. 🙁 I need to start walking daily. >.>
Anyway, it seems like a lot of people have exams/finals they can’t find the time to study for or are afraid they will fail the test – no matter how hard they study. Maybe these tips and tricks will help you?
Keep in mind that, for some of the following, it helps to have at least one other person.
- Whether you are solving for x or another variable, check your solution by solving the equation backwards using the answer(s) you received for said variable(s). By doing it twice and knowing how to check your work, you are decreasing the chances of that problem from receiving an incorrect mark.
- ABC Teach has various worksheets for Middle School/Junior High that are great for practice and/or review.
- Spark Notes was extremely useful to me in high school. It holds study guides for many novels, prose pieces, poetry, literary terms, and more.
- Take notes as you read, rewrite all of your notes in your own personal shorthand and/or using a highlighter, highlight the key points of your notes.
- After reading the book, if it is a movie, watch the movie and pay attention to the differences it has. Compare and contrast on a sheet of notebook paper, and then compare your movie notes to your book notes. Notice the difference, and pay attention to the details.
- Research movies that relate to your current studies. Watch them, or simply read what they are about. Who knows? They may help you understand the lesson/unit more. 😉
- Surf the web for experiments/practice worksheets, and then use what you find as your personal study guide.
- Cheesy experiments tend to be the most memorable!
I hope this helps. 🙂
