How to ace every test you take

Not everyone is good at taking tests but with a few tips you’ll be able to go into every test with more confidence and better scores. Especially with end of year testing coming up, learning a few tips for testing will be helpful.

Everyone learns in different ways. Its best to know how you learn and the best ways to study for your learning type. There are four main types of ways to learn: visual, auditory, reading/writing, and kinesthetic (hands on learning). When you know your learning style it will be much easier to study. Visual learners learn best by seeing charts and graphs. Auditory learners learn the best by reciting information out loud. Reading/Writing learners learn the best by following along in books and taking notes. Kinesthetic learners learn the best by doing things and adding activities to learning.

Besides knowing your learning style there are just some basic tips that will help you on your future tests. The first tip is to eat a good breakfast. If you have a good breakfast its a good start to the day and will help so you’re not thinking about food while you’re taking your test. The next tip is to take breaks when you study. Its been proven that if you take some breaks when you test that you will study more productively. The best tip I can give you is to not multitask and to try your best to just focus on what you are studying. The best way to do this is to keep your phone out of sight. Phones are very distracting and it helps to keep your phone in another room when you are studying.

Hopefully these tips will help you on your tests. Good luck!
