Math tests can be a source of headaches for many students. However, if you'd like to break out of this way of thinking and learn to take your math tests effectively, follow the tips below.

How to Take Your Math Tests Effectively

  1. Needless to say, you should first prepare for them. Studying little by little and practicing on a regular basis is the best way to ensure you'll be ready to take your test. While you study, focus on understanding math, not just memorizing it.
  2. If math tests make you nervous, employ techniques to shake off the nerves. On the days leading up to it, exercise or meditate. If you're nervous during your test, take deep breaths in, avoid negative thoughts, and trust in your knowledge and skills.
  3. Part of being ready for your tests is having the right supplies. Know if you can use your calculator, or if you're allowed a crib sheet. Likewise, keep your eraser, pencil, rulers, and similar tools ready to be used.
  4. While math doesn't require much memorization, you will need to learn a few formulas. If that's the case, write the formulas on the test immediately after receiving it, so you don't forget about them later on.
  5. Of course, you should understand your test in order for you to complete it correctly. To that end, make sure you read everything on it (instructions, possible answers, etc.). If upon this review, you have a question, ask your teacher as soon as possible.
  6. Math problems can take a lot of time to solve. To be as time-efficient as possible, answer the easiest questions first. This way, you'll get those easy points promptly, and you'll have more time to focus on the more complex questions.
  7. If there is a math problem that is giving you "problems", skip it for the time being. If you get stuck on a problem, you may be working on it for awhile. Instead, mark it down, move on, and then come back to it.
  8. Answering your math problems in a hurry can lead to a lot of mistakes. For that reason, remember to work slowly but surely, so you don't make mechanical errors that could have been easily avoided.
  9. On math tests, teachers aren't only interested in the answers, but how you got to them. That's why it is especially important that you answer in a proper manner. This includes writing legible numbers and keeping your work in order.
  10. Last but not least, review your work if you have time. Read the whole test again (including the instructions and the answers you gave), and look for mistakes that you can correct or questions you may have missed.
