I think that this is very helpful, because it's true. I know from experience. I have tried to cram everything on a math test the night before and iI did horrible. But when i did my homework for practice, i did really well on the test.

I think the two points the article mentioned are very important. First of all, Take Practice Tests is more important than anything you need to do before the test. Be preparing for what kind of question the test would ask and find your weakness.

Second is not to stay up all night. If you prepared well before the test, there's no reason to be panic and stay up the whole night. If you do not prepare enough and it's already the last minute, and there's no point to catch up in the midnight. A good sleep is better than anything. It keeps your mind clear during the test.

This article had the information I needed. On the days leading up to test I mostly just stress and freak out. This article had not only good advice on how to be prepared to take the test by taking practice test and not study cramming the night before so you can get a good nights sleep.

The steps for each part of the test including before and during will help me when I take my Final.

Being successful with math exams

Pay ATTENTION in class. Move ALL distractions off desk, and participate. If your classmate disrupts you often, then move seats. Notes, notes, and more notes. Please make sure you write clearly, and on lined paper. I say lined paper, because it is easiest too keep your notes very readable. Most importantly a full nights rest the night before. Second most important eating a good lunch/breakfast. With these two thing's you are off to a great start!

The night before your exam you should always study. Go over all your notes, and re-listen to any lectures you have recorded. (That pertains to anything you are having issues with). Writing down all Important formula's and going over them before test is very helpful. Sometimes in your math book,they have practice test's, take them and see what portions you need too study more.

I like how this tip says to review everything and if you get an answer that's not listed, work the problem again. I also like the sense of humor about "yes mom I ate something". Many people don't realize but eating something before taking a test actually does help.

Grueling Days Leading up to a Test

I do not think you can describe the days leading up to a test using only one word - grueling. I think Mom has is right...One thing I take away from this, is to see where you went wrong on a problem and do it over again, chances are you will not make the same mistake over again.

I would have to agree.

The crazy thing about review this is that is as though I was reading a note from mom. I hardly ever took my mother's advice while in my middle high school, but the more and more I read on how to become more effective in math a lot of it is what my mother had said to do such as get a good night sleep, eat the morning of, relax and don't forget to breath but more importantly don't cram the night before. Reading this was a simple and clear and helpful reminder.
