Test Taking: Everything You Never Wanted to Know About Test Taking Because You Were Afraid You'd Flunk.
Hurwitz, David A.
Guidelines are presented to help college students prepare for taking tests, with particular instructions for objective, essay, and quantitative tests. A check list suggests the types of information which should be known before starting to study for a test--such as type of questions and probable content. Techniques for studying include outlining course content and mnemonics. Strategies for taking objective tests (matching, multiple choice, true-false, and direct answer) direct the student to pay attention to specific words and phrases. Directions for taking essay tests stress the organization of ideas and time limits. Quantitative examinations--described as frequently given in business, mathematics, and science classes--must be carefully paced so that the students' time is efficiently spent. Sample test exercises are presented for each of the main types of tests--objective, essay, and quantitative--and for self-pacing. The appended key work list defines and interprets words which are frequently used in examination questions. (GDC)
