Amlon's Test Taking Tips
Be on time and come fully prepared with any materials you need
(e.g. pencils, calculator, ID).
Read the directions at least twice to make sure you understand
what is expected.
Look over the test to see what kinds of questions there are, and
to give yourself an idea of how long you should allot for each area.
Take your time, think carefully and don't panic - don't let other
students leaving distract or rush you!
Look out for absolute words like "always" and
Always show your work - this often leads to partial credit even if the answer is wrong.
Do not be in a hurry - look over your test for careless errors like number transposition or a decimal point in the wrong place.
On essay questions give the major points first and details last!
Use simple and correct words - do not abbreviate or use slang.
Check your spelling and punctuation. Write legibly and neatly -
print if your printing is better!
Write down any formulas, equations or rules you had to memorize
before actually working on the test itself.
Don't linger on one question too long - mark your best guess and
come back to the question if time permits.
Be careful about changing your first answers without good reason
- your first choices are more likely to be correct.
