Test Strategies for Quantitative and Math

When preparing for a math test... practice, practice, practice!

  • Make certain you know when and why you are using specific formulas. 
  • Write down all the formulas you have learned in a list.
  • Memorize formulas.

Test Taking Time:

  • As soon as you get your test, write down pertinent formulas in the margins or on scrap paper.
  • Read the test carefully.
  • Make certain to show your work and answer all parts of the question.
  • Pay attention to labels, decimal points, and signs.
  • Review your work looking for careless mistakes, such as incorrectly copied numbers.
  • If you have time, re-work the questions to make certain you get the same answer.
