How to Study for a Math Test

1. Learn Day-by-Day.  Learning is a process not an event

2. Attend Class

3. Find your Learning Style

4. Never Skip Something you Don’t Understand

5. Practice Every Day

Learning is not an instant experience; it is a procedure.  Learning is a process not an event.  Rome wasn’t built in a day, and learning anything (or everything) isn’t going to happen in a day either.  You cannot expect to learn everything in one day, at night, before the test. It is important and necessary to learn day-by-day. Good time management plays a considerable role in learning. When you manage your time, and begin test preparation well in advance, you will notice the subjects are easier than you thought, or feared,  and you will take the test without the stress of a sleepless body and an anxious mind.
