Since graded tests will determine the majority of your grade in this course, it is important to remember and follow these test preparation guidelines:
   Begin reviewing and solving problems at least one week before the starting date for a graded test.
   Set a realistic grade goal for each test and take a computer practice test (if available) early in your week of preparation to determine how much study time you will need in order to attain your goal.
   Be sure to write down all of the test questions along with your work and solutions and be sure to write down the correct solutions to any problems you miss.
   Study the material with which you are having difficulty, and practice solving problems similar to those you missed on the practice test.
   Get help with any problems which you do not understand!
Continue studying and taking additional practice tests until you achieve your grade goal.
