The first A & P II exam is almost here. This is your opportunity to show them what you know.
Are you ready?
Here are some tips to help you get ready for the test.
Study your notes
Did you take notes in class? Now would be a good time to revise them. Read them as many times as you can and try to understand the concepts. If there are some concepts that are difficult for you, there are three things you can do:
a.Check it in your textbook.
b.Ask your professor in class
c.Post the question on this blog and we will respond.
Work on Review questions
Did your professor give you any review questions? Clicker questions? Those are the areas to focus on. Answer all the review questions, especially all the ones he talked about in the class. If there are any questions that are difficult for you to answer, post it on this blog and we will respond ASAP. Some of your class mates have had their questions answered on this blog.
Before you go for the exam, it is important to make sure that you actually know the material. Unpreparedness is the number one cause of test-taking anxiety, so make sure that you know your stuff.
How can you be sure you know?
Quiz yourself. Get a friend to ask you questions or ask yourself questions and attempt to answer them without looking at your books.
