    Best answer: Here's a really good one. A LOT of your exams are essay exams, or ones that include essay writing. While you study, write your own test questions and answers. OK, I know these won't be your teacher's questions, but the language in your answers will probably have phrases and sentences you'll be able to use during the exam. Be familiar with the exam's language before you take it.

    If you don't know what kind of test it will be, study for an essay test.

    Memorizing - the two basic principles are organization of information (outlining) and practice (flash cards, rewriting your outlines). Put reading notes into an outline and lecture notes into an outline. For even better organization, put notes together in a composite outline. Worst of all possible tests - make the composite outline into a set of flash cards and practice till you have it memorized or re-write the outline in the extreme. Although it takes times to make those cards, the advantage is not practicing with things you already know. Also, writing the cards is study.

    Math - Practice doing problems. Practice!!!

    Best books on study are by faculty members in Psych and Ed dept's - like Complete idiot's Guide to Study Skills.

    So I am home schooled, and have quizzes every day. I do them by myself and I maintain a good grade. However, one of my subjects requires a password from the adult to access. I'm not gonna lie, I know my mom's password. But I ONLY USE IT TO ACCESS THE TEST. Nothing else. Not to access answers, not to do anything. I earn every A myself. But recently she found out that I knew and she thinks I've been cheating on all of my tests and is so mad. What should I do?

    I was at an extra help class with my social studies teacher. The topic of Donald Trump came up, and I said I was going to the inauguration. He then said, "I am surprised your mother went to Yale and voted for Donald Trump ." A few days later I was working on a project in his classroom. He asked me why I did this project on Ronald Reagan. I said, "My dad went to his funeral , a I think he was a really good president." In front of the entire class he said, " Yeah, if you like Reaganomics ." This made me angry and embarrassed. I didn't confront him because I do not want him to hate me or treat me differently. What do I do?

  • How do you get a A on a math test when you typically get C's.?

    Best answer: I always had trouble with Math. I can do Basic Arithmetic...but only because my teachers handed out printed tables of it (addition, subtraction, multiplication division), to a factor of 12. And I had to MEMORIZE them.

    Best answer: I always had trouble with Math. I can do Basic Arithmetic...but only because my teachers handed out printed tables of it (addition, subtraction, multiplication division), to a factor of 12. And I had to MEMORIZE them. So I just kept repeating all of it, until it was drilled into my head.

    Anything beyond Arithmetic gave me fits, especially Fractions! (I never could get that straightened out!)

    The only choice you have is to carefully write down the step-by-step procedures for doing each kind of Math equation, then repeat them over and over, until you memorize them. Rote repetition is the ONLY way to learn Math, if you don't have natural aptitude.

  • I just took an online IQ test. Is 92 any good?

    Best answer: IQ tests are set to define 100 as the median value with a standard deviation of 15 points. That means half of IQ test takers have an IQ of 100 or more and half have an IQ of 100 or less. 68% of test takers have an IQ of 85 to 115. That makes you quite normal! But that said, most online IQ tests are advertising... show more

    Best answer: I belong to Mensa... an organization of members with high IQs, and the nature and measurement of intelligence is an ongoing topic of discussion and research.

    In some ways, IQ absolutely measures intelligence... especially regarding preparedness for advanced education in terms of memory, pattern recognition, and problem-solving. That being said, I would rather have an average IQ of 110 along with good study habits, a balanced lifestyle, good organizational skills, an optimistic outlook, and solid family relationships than I would have an IQ of 150 without those things. There are people with lower IQs who out-perform people with higher IQs, every single day.

    Furthermore, IQ tests are most helpful in pointing out EXTREME outliers -- that is, people with extremely high or extremely low IQs, both of whom might need extra help succeeding in life. For example, it is far more significant if one person has an IQ of 110 and another has an IQ of 80 (or 140), than if one person has an IQ of 110 and another has an IQ of 105 or 115.

    IQ tests do NOT measure certain types of intelligence well... such as creativity, or imagination, or interpersonal skills. They also assume a certain degree of cultural familiarity and academic preparation that some people do not have. For example, an IQ test question might refer to tires and an automobile... but if the person being tested has never SEEN an automobile, he is not likely to understand the question no matter how intelligent he is. A person who has not learned to read will probably not do well on the vocabulary portion of the test. And so on.

    So, yes, IQ tests are a good measure of a person's relative intelligence as compared to other SIMILAR people... but they don't measure everything, and they don't measure everyone equally.

  • Why do Black people score so low on IQ test?

    Best answer: The questions on these tests can be biased based on a person upbringing and life exposure.
