Test-Taking Tips Get plenty of sleep the night before the test. A rested mind thinks more clearly and you won t feel like falling asleep while taking the test. Draw a figure when one is not provided with the problem. If a figure is given, write any details from the problem on the figure. Read each problem carefully. As you finish each problem, read it again to make sure your answer is reasonable. Review the formula sheet that will be supplied with the test. Make sure you know when to use each formula. First answer problems that you know how to solve. If you do not know how to solve a problem, skip it and come back to it when you have finished the others. Use other test-taking strategies that can be found throughout this book, such as working backward and eliminating answer choices. Preparing For Standardized Tests C3
