Previously I have written a post on How to prepare for Maths common test. (It has been one of the most popular posts) Today, I am going to discuss the 3 Things You Should Not Do Before Any Math Exams:
Do not practice new Math questions
Practicing Math is something you should do consistently everyday but NOT before your Math exams. I do not encourage this as by you might get 'freak' out by questions that you could not do, did not get the correct answers. This will not do good for your confidence.
Do not think of doing last minute revision
The more you cramped, the worse it gets. Pre exam period is about taking everything as per normal day. You eat your breakfast as per normal. Do not burn midnight oil instead have an early rest. This will ensure that you have a clear logical mind to handle the questions the next day. Freshness is one of the important factors to do well in exams.
Do not prepare your cheat sheet the day before your exam
Revision for Math exams is unique from other subjects in the sense that all you need for a fast revision would be just a sheet of A4 Paper with all the required formula and important points on just ONE sheet of A4 paper, YOUR CHEAT SHEET. Now this cheat sheet should be prepared many days in advance, even while you are consistently revising and working on your Math. It should be a 'stale' copy which you have been referring to for all your tests and exams.
I would love to hear from you what are the things you do or do not do on the eve of your Math Exams. Leave me a comment or question.
