Print.Students Offering Support: Laurier Chapter BU383 2010&2011 PackageTips for General Midterm SuccessUse mnemonics to remember concepts better. An example of a mnemonic would be acronyms.Do practice multiple choice questions. Doing these practice questions can assess yourunderstanding of what you have learned and can help you identify areas of weakness.Practice multiple choice questions are found in textbooks, on textbook companion websites,and/or provided by your professor.Read a multiple choice question and try to answer it BEFORE looking at the possible answers.Having an answer in mind before looking at possible answers can reduce the chances of beingfooled by wrong answers.Use logic and process of elimination on multiple choice questions. For example, if you knowthat answer A is wrong, then logically an answer “A and B are correct” in the same questionmust also be incorrect. When you don‟t know the answer, eliminating wronganswers (asopposed to just random guessing) can increase your chances of getting the question right.Practice writing answers to short answer questions. If you know ahead of time what thequestions will be on the short answer section, make a list of essential points you want toinclude in each answer and practice writing the answer on paper. If you don’t know whatquestions will be on the short answer section, you could try scanning the material to identifyconcepts that have enough content to be a possible short answer question. Again, you canmake a list of essential points you want to include in each answer and practice writing theanswer on paper. Even if the question you thought of doesn’t show up on the short answersection, doing this can help solidify what you learned.Don’t spend too much time on a difficult question. It is better to move onto easier questions toensure getting those marks than to get hung up on a difficult question, especially when time islimited.
