How to Take Your Math Tests Effectively

For many students, math tests are one of the most dreaded events in their academic lives. Still, if you have one coming up and want to do well in it, there are a few things you can do to guarantee a good grade. To learn how you can take your math tests effectively, continue reading.

Prepare for Them Properly

Needless to say, the first step is preparing for your tests properly. While you do, use effective study methods and work on understanding the reasoning behind the math. To that end, it's best if you practice days in advance since that's how you master this subject. Likewise, know that cramming the night before won't help you.

Shake Off the Test Nerves

Your nerves may get in the way of your performance on your math tests. To keep them at bay, aside from preparing properly, you should use some relaxation techniques. For example, exercising can allow you to use up that nervous energy. If you're feeling anxious during the test, take deep breaths in to calm yourself.

Know What You'll Need and Get It Ready

Is your pencil sharpened? Do you have an eraser? Are you allowed to use your calculator? Does the teacher let you bring a crib sheet? You should have the answer to these and other similar questions so you can have your tools ready for your test. If you don't, you may end up getting unnecessarily stressed.

Write Out Formulas Immediately

Even though doesn't require much memorization, you still need to use your memory to recall formulas and other similar elements. If you want to make sure that you won't forget them halfway through your test, write them out on the sheet as soon as you get it. This will also "free" some brain power that you can use to work on the test's math problems.

Understand What's Being Asked of You

Misunderstanding the instructions can be very troubling. For that reason, one of the first things you should do upon receiving your test is read the instructions thoroughly. Not only that but before you begin, make sure you actually understand what is being asked of you. If you have any questions, ask your teacher right away.

Start Out Easy

When working on a test, you have a time limit, which means you need to use your time wisely. That's why it is a good idea to start answering the easiest questions first. This way, you will be able to get them out of the way promptly, which will give you a chance to spend more time working on the more complicated questions.

Work Your Way Slowly But Surely

According to ThoughtCo., mechanical errors are one of the most common math mistakes students make. This means that they skip steps, do the math sloppily, or answer in a hurry. To ensure you won't miss easy points because of mechanical errors, work your way slowly but surely through each exam.

Avoid Getting Stuck on a Problem

As mentioned above, you are on a time limit. That's why, aside from answering the easy questions first, you should try to avoid getting stuck on a problem. If after working on one, you notice it's taking you a lot of time, move on. Just be sure to mark it so you can remember to come back to it later on.

Answer in a Proper Manner

In every test, you should answer as instructed, while also ensuring that the teacher will be able to understand what you wrote. In math, this is especially important, since teachers not only care about the "answer", but the work you did to get to it.

Review the Work You Did

Finally, you just need to review the work you did (if you have any time left). Go over the test again, read the instructions, review your answers, make sure you didn't miss any questions, and verify that your test is ready to be handed over to the teacher.
