How to Pass Any Test Without Really Trying How to Pass Any Test Without Really Trying Presentation Transcript

  • How To Pass Any Test Without Really Trying
  • First : TAKE YOUR TIME!
    • Read through ALL directions carefully
    • Read through ALL of the possible answers
    • BEST means BEST not FIRST!
  • Second : NO “ STARWARS ”
    • Answer what you KNOW for certain first – NO Guessing
      • SKIP what Don’t know or doubt
      • Lightly Cross out/mark USED items
    • ANY question may give you the answer you couldn’t remember earlier!
    • Put a light mark on your scantron if you skip something - TAKE YOUR TIME!
  • THIRD : TAKE AN EDUCATED GUESS
    • Apply what you already know:
    • Use logic or reason :
    • Reduce your options: 50/50
  • Use Deductive Reasoning : What you already know.
    • Word Meanings - prefix/suffix = meaning!!
      • dis- = not
      • anti- = opposite or against
      • -s = plural
    • information learned in earlier grades
    • recall the activities we did in class! ( looks, sounds, actions )
  • Use logic or reason :
    • think logically = MUST make sense
    • tenses, parts of speech, word endings
    • plural/singular
    • person, place, event, or idea?
      • Who?
      • Which one?
      • How many?
      • When?
  • Reduce your options: 50/50
    • eliminate the impossible
    • mark off choices used
      • lightly so can erase
  • Some BASIC Rules :
    • If it doesn’t sound familiar – it isn’t the answer! DUHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
    • Your FIRST guess is most often right!
      • Don’t second guess yourself!
      • Change an answer only when you RECOGNIZE an error!
    • If all else fails, mark option ‘B’
