From the Teacher's Desk ...

Help your child prepare for tests

• Plan a pre-exam study schedule, select optimum study times and stick to it.

• Be systematic. Survey the chapter, review questions and learn what your child doesn't know.

• Prepare and study a master outline or a set of summary notes.

• When your child has completed an outline or summary, have him or her read it as often as he or she can before an exam. Have your child recite it to himself or herself.

• Learn to predict questions. Take advantage of clues presented by your child's teacher.

• Make a list of troubleshooting points. Have your child carry this around and ask himself or herself these points

• If cramming is used to cover material not already learned, serious damage can occur to "known" information. Use intense reviews to provide final review.

• On exam day, read over notes, master outline or summary. Over-learning is a vital part of feeling confident and reducing test stress.
