Overview

    THE STUDY SMART SERIES, designed for students from junior high school through lifelong learning programs, teaches skills for research and note-taking, provides exercises to improve  grammar, and reveals secrets for putting these skills together in great essays.
    Test taking is a skill apart from learning course material, a skill every student must acquire in order to survive. Test-Taking Strategies is the book for anyone who has ever dreaded an exam.
    Strategies for taking every kind of test are dealt with—objective tests (multiple choice, true/false, matching), essay tests, and oral exams. The authors also offer help for handling anxiety, explaining relaxation and desensitization techniques that help students control nervousness and keep it from detracting from performance. There are tips for managing time during the test, knowing when to guess, and for pulling answers out of your memory even when the question drew a blank at first glance.
    Essay tests and oral exams are particularly gruesome for most students, and until now there has been very little advice for handling such tests. Test-Taking Strategies includes plenty of advice for developing ideas while under pressure.

An informative guide to help you raise your scoring on all types of tests, from multiple choice to long and short essay.

    useless!!

    this was the most useless book i have ever picked up. so useless that i'm not even going to return it or give it away because i don't want anyone else to have it. It was soooooo general, sooo broad, anyone could have written it, i can't believe they even let this book be published. I usually keep all the books i buy, but this one is going straight into the trash can. I didn't learn anything from it, the sections were small and hardly covered anything.I was better off getting one of those mini books they have on the stands, that make you waste two dollars but at least you have a pretty little book to display, at least one of it purposes can count as an ORNAMENT! "just use your judgment" was the redundant phrase thoughout the whole book, YES! i know i can use my judgement but i wanted something more concrete than that. Please save yourself six dollars, go get yourself three mini books or something but DO NOT get this book.
