4. Successful Test Taking

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

– Benjamin Franklin

Preparation for an exam is not glamorous. It’s easy to find other things to do that are more interesting and fun. Students need to keep themselves motivated with their “eyes on the prize.” Think of it like this: if the most important event of your life was coming up and you wanted to perform to the best of your ability in that event, you would likely spend some time preparing for it, rehearsing for it, practicing it, etc. Approaching test-taking can be successful if you approach in the same way.
