You need a well-made planning and well-sketched strategy to come out of math tests with flying colors. There is a list of winning strategies to your benefit.
Firstly, you should review math exercises daily and weekly. It is good to make a major review before one week of the test. Use flash cards and study checklists.
Once the date of math test is announced, enlist the topics that are to be reviewed and specific problems from each topic. Then, work out the enlisted problems and practice them many times. Solving all sorts of difficult sums is a boost to the level of your confidence and spirit.
Don’t trust yourself if you brim with over confidence to solve very difficult sums in the examination hall without having practiced them at home. So, practice each kind of difficult sums in a large number from time to time.
Taking mock tests is the best alternative to achieve success in a math test. Mock tests are conducted like actual tests. There is least difference between them. Make sample test papers from guidebooks, exercise books and textbooks for yourself. If you have worked them out with 100% accuracy, you can be sure to perform well in the final math test.
All tests are conducted within a limited time. So, set time by yourself to finish a practice test within the stipulated time. Take a clock beside you to remind yourself of the pace of time while taking a test at home. Thus, you can achieve time management skill and exercise it in the examination hall. Practice difficult sums again and again, unless you are able to solve them within a short time.
Arrange mathematical formulas, concepts or procedures in such a way that will make it easier for you to understand and apply them in solving problems.
It is a false belief that over-studying lowers the grade. Doing more practice will help you master mathematical prowess. Over study before the eve of math test may show adverse results. A good sleep at nights two or three days before the test will boost your health and memory.
Learn some breathing techniques to take deep breaths. Deep breaths supply more oxygen to the vital parts of the body that relieves stress and makes you feel at home. Take deep breaths for relaxation half an hour before the math test.
