Useful Tools to Help You Study

Preparing for an exam of any sort can be stressful, but with the right tools and organization, you can be fully prepared. The Tutoring Center in Broken Arrow has some useful tips to help you prepare for your exams.

Mnemonic Devices as a Study Tool

Mnemonic devices are a great way to help you learn and memorize important information for an exam. An example of a mnemonic device is PEMDAS. The letters in PEMDAS help students remember the order of operations in math. It stands for parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition and subtraction. Look for areas in your notes where a mnemonic device will help you retain information better.

Create an Outline

Study guides and outlines of what you need to study make for great organization tools. Create a list of the items that will be on the test and decide what areas you need to focus on more. An outline of what needs to be studied can also help you create a study schedule that will ensure you have time to study everything on your list.

Take Practice Tests

A great way to test how much you know and how much more you need to learn is by taking practice tests. For large exams, such as the SAT or ACT, a practice test before studying can reveal what areas you need the most help mastering. As you get through your studying, take another practice test to measure your growth. You can take another right before the exam in order to figure out which areas require more of your attention.
