PRE-EXAM PREP TIME
Advance preparation is the key to acing any exam. Following these tips will surely ease your exam anxieties!
Review past and present lessons. College entrance exams usually cover topics you already tackled in high school. Browse through your old text books and notes to refresh your memory. The longer you prepare for an exam, the better. (A month of preparation is definitely better than a week of cramming!)
Practice makes perfect. Practice tests show you what to expect during the day of the exam. If done properly (i.e. you don’t cheat and you follow the time limit), you will be able to identify what areas you need to improve on. If you don’t feel confident about reviewing on your own, you can also attend review classes. (Books by MSA that contain practice tests specifically for entrance exams are available in major bookstores. Call MSA at 435-6062 to 63 or visit their website at http://www.msatutorials.com for more information on review classes and tutorials.)
Talk to your college friends. If you have relatives or friends in college, talk to them about your worries and concerns. They’ll be glad to lend a listening ear, and since they’ve already gone through the experience of taking (and passing) entrance exams, they might have some useful advice to offer you!
