1. Find out from your teacher in advance just what work you will be expected to review.
2. Start far enough from back. For a final examination, review the whole term's work.
3. Review your notes paying particular attention to the points emphasized in class.
4. Reread the summaries in your textbook.
5. With the book closed, say aloud the important facts and ideas.
6. If possible, look at previous examination papers.
7. Look at your previous test papers in the course. Check particularly any questions you got wrong before and learn the right answers. Don't make the same mistake twice.
8. If you have found it helpful to study with another person, plan a review session with serous minded friend - after you have written down your own individual reviewer.
9. Gather together all needed materials: ballpens, pencils, erasers, and any other materials which you may need.
10. Get enough sleep the night before and eat a good breakfast.
