The article How to Study for a College Algebra Test is a great resource for those who feel uncomfortable about math. It goes over an 8 step strategy to help make a student successful in the realm of college algebra. These steps include having a positive attitude, practicing, doing problems step by step, attending class, and getting help.

As a math tutor I can say that these steps work. I often give the same advice to my tutees when they are feeling overwhelmed by an upcoming math exam. I have found that out of these steps the biggest improvement comes from practicing problems every day. Learning math takes hard work and time, and practicing problems is really the best way to drill the concepts and steps into a student?s brain. Anyone feeling stressed or down about an upcoming algebra exam could definitely find useful and comforting information in this article.

Doing the questions that I find easiest will help in the long run because it will give me more time to focus on the ones that are hard for me to do.

I keep seeing this over and over again, practice a little every day. Recheck answers and learn from your mistakes, seems simple enough. Ask for help, something I was always afraid to do. I didn't want to annoy my overly worked instructor, but now I know better. I will always seek help when needed.
