How to prep for gre for the test work
How do you prepare for the test?
What is school routine? Calls, briefcase, notebooks, diary, textbooks, the teacher, classmates, shift, which should not leave black stripes on the school linoleum, sadness about the two and the joy of fives … And constant quizzes and tests. How do you successfully pass these tests? How do you effectively prepare for them? That’s what you’re about to find out. Step-by-step study.
The first and most important thing is to make yourself learn and study. You have to give yourself the right attitude. Before the control or set-off usually recall a variety of cases: my mother told me to go to the store, the cat needs to be taken to the veterinary clinic, a friend Kohl has not called (-la) for a long time, etc. You will be looking for any excuse not to prepare. From “I want to eat” to “I’ll clean up the apartment, Mom will be pleased”. It happens that you, on the contrary, cancel all meetings with friends, arguing it with preparation. And then you walk back and forth through the apartment and you suffer: “Here, you have to prepare. I’m going to sit down. I’ll be right there.” But you’re not getting ready. Just by staying home, you calm your conscience, saying, “I’m not resting, I’m sitting at home, I have a test tomorrow.” What’s the use? The most effective motivation is to represent your success. Set yourself up for a good grade, imagine how praised you will be teacher, parents, what envious views of classmates you will feel on your back. How hard is the gre get it? And how you’ll grow up in your own eyes. After all, if it’s some difficult math topic, which is difficult for you to get a “five” or “four” is doubly pleasant. By the way, if you’re set up for an “A”, you’ll get a “good” for sure.
So, set up a place to study. The creative mess should be disassembled or sent to live in a different, more comfortable place. An empty desk should be filled with books, manuals, notebooks, papers, and other office supplies.
The next step is to make a plan. Clearly define for yourself what you’ll be studying. The installation “Today I will do a little English/Russian/Mathematics, etc.” often does not work. Limit yourself to a list of topics and sections. You can’t learn all the literature or history in the evening anyway. Therefore, it is better to refer to those items that you know the worst, which cause difficulties. The source of knowledge.
Now identify the sources that you will use in prep for gre for the quiz. There may be several:
Books (textbooks, manuals, reference books, encyclopedias, methods): it is better to limit yourself to 1-2 school textbooks. I understand perfectly well the desire to collect in the library of a variety of books on the subject, flip through the pages and absorb the knowledge. In the end it turns out to be just flipping through. It’s not enough, but it’s about business.
You’ve probably heard the expression “global dump” from your teachers more than once. It’s about the Internet. And they’re right about something. It’s not always easy to get the information you need out of the World Wide Web. Besides, it’s reliable, understandable and to the necessary extent. If you don’t know what you’re looking for, it’s best not to look. How long will it take just one search! And if you also come across the wrong historical date or physical formula … Here on the control, the shame will be. I taught you.
There is another option – to ask your teacher what sites you can use in preparation for lessons. The teachers are advanced now.
You shouldn’t study with friends and classmates. The only exception is if they know the material better than you and know how to explain it. Although, it happens that the material is very well remembered when it speaks to each other. It takes a long time. And, as a rule, conversations jump from physics to Masha Petya, from them to Marya Ivanovna, because she is so bad, she asks such difficult questions, from her again to mathematics and so on. So it’s better to tell your parents everything. In the evening, when you already feel prepared, and parents – tired.
You can always ask your school teacher for help, and this is always welcome. But teachers do not always have time for serious advice. Notebooks should be checked, to peds councils to walk, and at home to cook and the dog to walk. Here, a tutor can come to the rescue. And this, alas, is the most expensive option. Both the teacher and the tutor must go with a specific question. So you’ll save both yours and his time.
You’ve found the information you need, you’ve defined the subject, you’ll understand how you’ll study. The next important question is, “How do you memorize?” There are several ways:
Includes quite a few methods, but the most accessible in our situation is remembering through associations. Need to learn the dates from history? Maybe some of them remind you of your personal dates or someone’s phone? But you shouldn’t specifically search for and make up such analogies. Mathematical formulas can be turned into words and funny sentences. There are many such techniques. I advise you to turn them to you as well.

It’s a scary method. Why? Because knowledge starts to look like garbage and the head looks like an urn. Wrote a test, cleaned the trash can. I don’t remember anything, nothing happened. Amnesia. What does that mean? It’s gone. Pupils mistakenly think that teachers only demand a literal retelling of the textbook and clear definitions of a concept. No. The teacher needs you to understand the material. Okay, if you can explain the subject in your own words. It’s always easier to link new knowledge to what you already have.

You can and should write. It’s not worth using. It’s better to forget them at home. Cheat sheets in your pocket – head in the clouds. The cheat sheets at home – the head works. Writing them helps to memorize. Motor + visual memory = result!
Psychologists say that the information obtained during sleep or waking up is best memorized. Therefore, it is useful to scroll through the necessary material again at night, to repeat something. Then in the morning you can easily remember the contents of the section.
Be sure to alternate work and rest. From the fact that you barricade books, turn off the phones and pull everything out of the sockets, it will not be better. Forty minutes you’ve been studying, doing something else. I washed the dishes, watered the flowers, went to the store, read my favorite book. In such minutes of rest it is better not to watch TV and not to listen to music (except calm), knocks down. Express method
But what if there are only a few days left until the test, or even one? Is it possible to count on a good assessment in this case? Yes, we can. Here are some tips: First, you need to calm down. Yes, you can’t do without it. Unstrained nerves will only interfere with digestion. Especially since your trump card will now be not the theoretical knowledge of the textbook, but the ability to “twist”, make logical conclusions and generalizations. And, of course, it is necessary to get acquainted with each topic, with each question to have at least a general idea of everything. And just before the test, ask a classmate to tell you a question, explain a problem or a formula. It will be useful for him to talk again, and you will better understand.
Finally: Keep calm and confident, because you’ve learned everything and figured everything out! No bad control options, no bad questions. They were picked up yesterday… Get a good night’s sleep before the big day. Prep for gre change for the day. There’s a feeling that one night is always missing. That’s not true. It’s better to get a good night’s sleep, a good mood and a bright head.
I think I’ve learned everything. What about the teacher’s evil face, aggressive formulas and a feeling of failure? Then try a technique called “bringing it to the point of absurdity.” It would be good to attract a friend here as well. Imagine the most terrible, unimaginable details and terrifying consequences. Try to scare each other with a test. And here’s a paradox: instead of neurosis, you begin to understand that nothing terrible in general is not, and sometimes even funny.
No fur and no feather!
