As I sit in my car doing the final touches on my studying, I decided I would document a true experience of the morning of a test. Sadly, tests are a common occurrence at many schools, including Oratory. The most hectic time, in my opinion, is the morning of that test. At this point, the test is not only inevitable it is impending like a scary scene in a horror film. This often gives students (prepared or not) extreme butterflies and makes them desperate to touch up their knowledge one more time. In my five years at OP, I have seen many methods of doing this. For non-mathematical tests, many look off their flashcards, quizlets, and study guides one more time before they throw in the towel. For mathematically based tests, I have seen many do practice problems. If your hand is sore from the night before, I have seen many students look off their previous homework and practice problems and retrace their steps. Today, I have an English reading comprehension test. So far, I have reread my outline, used my flashcards, and have eaten a big breakfast. I know what you’re probably thinking. You think you may not have the time for this or simply don’t need breakfast. However, it helps a great deal because after an hour, fatigue from the night before will wear off and your mind will be clear. Whatever way you interpreted this article, thank you for reading. If you didn’t know how to study, I hope this helped a little. If not, at least you read until the end.
