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. |
