Tips for Test Taking www.utexas.edu/student/utlc PREPPING FOR THE TEST 1. Determine remaining tasks and establish a study schedule. Figure out what you need to get accomplished, and estimate the time you need for each task. Decide how you’re going to divide your time between completing unfinished reading,  reviewing reading and notes, identifying major themes and issues, etc. Next, sketch out a rough calendar of the time remaining before the test, and make note of the  amount of time you  actually have to do the work Fit your tasks into the available time slots. 2. Create hierarchies. Allow longer periods of study time for dealing with large relationships and concepts, and use  shorter time intervals for review and reinforcement.   Focus on difficult tasks first, then reward yourself with easier ones. Take brief breaks every 45 minutes or 1 hour.   Vary tasks and topics during long study sessions.   3. Use good study habits. Find a place where you’re productive; a dorm room or bedroom is rarely the best choice. Stick to a regular study schedule.
