I’ve always looked at The Teas V as a fun little book about herbal tea and how people can ‘self-test’ their mental and physical state, and I think it makes a good addition to the knowledge you can gather from various books. However, I’ve always wondered just how useful these tests could be in helping nurses pass their actual clinical exams. In this article I’ll briefly run through some of the considerations you should keep in mind before embarking on your teas V course.
Firstly, bear in mind that the reason the tests are administered by hospitals is that they want to be sure that you’ll get through your examination easily. This means that you will probably have to take a number of tests, so you’ll need to choose your ones very carefully. It’s worth asking your nurse what the usual test structure is for these tests, and what the typical response rate is. If you don’t feel comfortable with the idea of giving personal information to anyone about yourself, then you’ll probably be better off taking the online versions of these tests.
Secondly, it will help you immensely if you can demonstrate how well you’ve studied. To do this, you should arrange for your teacher to do a reading test with you, where you demonstrate your understanding of the content. Don’t worry too much about being perfect; just try to demonstrate that you know what you’re reading. You’ll find that the more you do the better your marks will be. In addition to this you should also try and arrange for a practical test with a qualified tea expert to gauge your real ability, rather than just relying on your marks.
The third factor which you must pay attention to when preparing for any kind of tea, including Teas V test science, is preparation. It’s important to understand the material sufficiently well, and to be able to demonstrate your understanding in a controlled environment. Try not to leave it all until the last minute, as this will mean you forget important parts.
Next you’ll have to demonstrate some skill. This will mostly be in the area of writing tests, but you may also be called upon to demonstrate cooking skills, or even mathematical ability. It’s really best to practice as much as you can, and to read up as much as you can on the subject. There are lots of excellent guides available for free on the internet that can help you get started.
There is always one other thing you can do to improve your chances of success. That other thing is to make sure you actually like the particular tea. Not only is this important for your comprehension, but also it can have an effect on the quality of the tea itself. For instance, if you enjoy a particular variety of black tea, then it’s likely that you’ll have a better experience when drinking that particular tea.
The overall quality of your tea or essay is going to depend largely on the way that you prepared it. You should try and prepare as thoroughly as possible, and to ensure that there aren’t any gaps in your knowledge. If you make sure that you’ve done your research before writing the test, and that you know the basic concepts, then you’ll be able to pass your first test with flying colours. With the right preparation you’ll be well on your way to becoming a great tea connoisseur!
