It almost seems as if the school year just started, but we are well on our way the end of another semester and another year. With college exams, high school finals, and other standardized tests coming up soon, there’s no time like the present to begin preparations! Preparation for exams may seem like a no-brainer but there are actually several great tips for surviving these dreaded exams and possibly ace a few! Along these helpful suggestions, Casio has made it even easier to prepare and keep up with the many changes by offering an extensive line of graphing and scientific calculators that are standardized-testing approved and the ideal accessory to excel and be ready for whatever is in the works!
Skim: Right before the big test, you may be tempted to open up the book and read it from front to back, but this really isn’t an effective method for most. Instead, check out things like the course syllabus, study questions, chapter reviews and even the footnotes.
Participate: Don’t skip out on the review session or on a study group, but instead make the most of your time and opportunities to get as much from the groups as possible. Study groups with the Teacher’s Assistant may be the most beneficial of all!
Disconnect: Turn off your phone and put down the other devices that normally keep you occupied with the various social media sites. Twitter, Pinterest and SnapChat probably won’t have much information available to you and are nothing more than distractions. Unplug!
Meet with the Professor: Make an appointment with your professor to discuss anything that you may not understand, ask questions or ask abut topics that may be covered on the exam.
Take a break: All-nighters and marathon study sessions will only make you tired, cranky and not able to retain the information you’ve covered. Take a short break every hour or so ~ take a walk, or just go outside for a little fresh air.
Casio can make the up-coming exams and tests a bit easier with the new CASIO PRIZM fx-CG10 calculator. This new calculator is revolutionary among graphing calculators with features that enhance the user’s understanding of mathematics. PRIZM creates a whole new way to learn math, with features including high-resolution color LCD screen with full textbook-style display, picture plot that enables learning from real-life pictures and a multitude of functions that leverage the color LCD in graphing objects like dotted lines, circles, bars and grid lines on graphs.
