To many students, math tests are incredibly intimidating. If you feel this way, you should have an effective game-plan that can allow you to take your math tests in the most successful way possible. For a few tips on the matter, continue reading the post below.

How to Take Your Math Tests Effectively

  1. Start by studying effectively for your math tests. Avoid simply cramming or memorizing your math lessons. Instead, work on understanding the math, and practice every day to be properly prepared.
  2. If math gives you anxiety, use relaxation techniques to keep those nerves from getting the best of you. Exercise or meditate on the days leading up to the test. If you're nervous during the test, stay confident and take deep breaths in.
  3. Make sure you have the necessary supplies for the test. If you'll be using a pencil, an eraser, a sharpener, a calculator, a ruler, a crib sheet (if allowed), among other tools, ensure they're within arm's reach during your test.
  4. It's a good idea to write out any formula you had to memorize for your test as soon as you get it. This will free up some brain space, which you can use to work on the math problems.
  5. As with any test, you should read it thoroughly and understand what's being asked of you before you begin answering. Go over the instructions, possible answers, and more. If something isn't clear, ask your teacher.
  6. Start answering the easy questions first. This will let you score those easy points and will get them out of the way so you can focus on the complex math problems.
  7. If you're stuck on a math problem, skip it for now, so you can be more time-efficient. Just remember to mark it so you know that you need to get back to it once you're done with the rest of the test.
  8. While you're on a time limit, you shouldn't rush to answer, as this could lead to avoidable mistakes. On the contrary, try working slowly but surely to ensure you're on the right track.
  9. The thing about math tests is that the "answer" isn't all that matters, but how you got to it, too. To guarantee your teacher will understand your process, answer properly (as instructed, in an organized manner, and with legible numbers).
  10. Lastly, always review your test after you've finished it (if you have time to do so). Re-read the instructions, check your answers, and verify that you've answered every last question on it.
