How to Cram for a Test

How to Cram for a Test




Sure, the best way to prepare for a test is to faithfully attend class, take copious notes, and join a study group. But if it's a little late for that, cramming is the way to keep that F at bay.
You will need:
A quiet, distraction free area
Your textbook
Your class notes if you took any
Paper
A pen or pencil
A highlighter
Three by five lined index cards
Water
And healthy snacks
Step 1: Begin by reading over your lecture notes. If you don’t have any, beg and plead with a classmate to photocopy theirs.
Tip: Some campuses have note-taking services where you can purchase class notes.
Step 2: Highlight the key points in your notes.
Step 3: Skim the textbook for anything in bold, or key definitions, sections, and charts, and highlight those portions.
Tip: Read the first and last few pages of each chapter thoroughly, because they often summarize the information.
Step 4: Create flashcards by reviewing all the highlighted portions of your notes and textbook and writing one key piece of information on each index card.
Tip: Keep your energy high by drinking water to stay hydrated and eating snacks that raise your blood sugar without it crashing afterwards, like bananas.
Step 5: Memorize the material on your flashcards. Recite it out loud until you’re sure you’ve got it.
Tip: If you’re having trouble remembering something, write it down six or seven times in a row.
Step 6: Get some shut-eye. A Harvard study proved that eight hours of sleep before a test improves performance by 25 percent.
Step 7: Eat a hearty breakfast the day of the exam. Numerous studies prove that people perform mental tasks better on a full stomach.
Tip: Eat foods rich in complex carbohydrates and protein, like eggs and whole-wheat cereal or toast, so your energy lasts. Sugary foods will give you a quick rush and then leave you yawning in the test.
Step 8: Take your flashcards with you to your testing site and keep going over them until the exam begins.
Step 9: Right before the test starts, take several deep, slow breaths to help you relax.
Step 10: Take a nap after the test. Studies show it will help you retain what your learned - for the semester final.
