When I took the exam, I knew I was going to score very well. After all, I had studied well in school, so why not do the same thing on the exam? I knew that the longer I took the better I would do, so why not give it a go? I figured if I took my time I would be able to get through the whole thing faster. I was right.
There really isn’t any secret about how to study for these exams. You can spend as much time as you like, but you have to remember to keep track of your notes and do your research before hand. It will make a world of difference and you won’t regret it at the end of the day.
I started studying about two and a half months before the exam. When I first started I found that I was much too tired to study. I needed a couple days off, so I tried taking them during the week, but I didn’t feel ready. Well, the day before the exam I went out with some friends to do an outdoor activity. That really gave me the energy I needed to get through my coursework.
When I was studying for the exam, I read the course reviews, which I had picked up in the library. The whole course was pretty easy. I simply followed the directions and focused on what I needed to remember. Once I got the gist of the chapters, I put my study and reference time aside. I knew I was prepared when I got to the exam room.
Well, needless to say I came in first, and that was surprising to me because normally I didn’t bother with such details. However, the teacher was very kind and helpful. She helped a lot by pointing out my weak points and helped me tweak them for better performance on the test. In fact, she was so helpful that even when I was about to panic about something I was reassured by her that I would do well on the exam. So, I was really glad that she encouraged me to go to the examination room.
Now, I don’t know about you, but when I think back on that time I felt really proud of myself. As you probably imagine, I took the second test very quickly. I was very excited about qualifying for the third choice, which was an all-asia exam. Well, that didn’t happen, because I got chucked down to the second place behind another candidate who had done much better on the previous two rounds. So, I certainly learned my lessons and I’m very happy with my results.
The key to these kinds of things is practice. You need to spend as much time as you can get really good at studying and memorizing everything. Then, once you have memorized everything, it is just a matter of learning how to apply the knowledge that you have memorized to the real exam. This is a lot easier said than done, though. So, I recommend that you read my other articles about how to study for the Ati Teas Exam.
