Tips on Test Taking

Good Advice and bring extra batteries!
Jacob Gorski, College Junior

This article gives great advice. I find the 'stay in motion' tip very useful. At least twice, I've not followed this advice and my grade suffered because of it.

If you're having trouble with a particular problem on an exam don't spend too much time on it. Knock out what you know first, come back the problem you're having trouble with later.

I also like the "Bring extra batteries" advice. I know a few classmates that have had the calculator die mid exam.

Good advice for Freshman
Peter J. Jackson, HS Senior

This article gives great advice to incoming engineering students (or any student) who feels nervous about preparing for their first or second exam. In some engineering classes the exams can be the difference between the A and the C or even worse, so good study/prep habits are important.

One particular tip which caught my attention was to bring extra batteries to an exam. I feel e very engineering student has run into the problem of running out of batteries and having to use another students (or professors) calculator which is totally different for theirs. In other words, it's easier to bring batteries than to search on some obscure calculator for the button you need.
