Are you taking the course in-classroom or online? If you're taking the course online and don't have a textbook, GET YOUR HANDS ON ONE! There are practice quizzes after every chapter, three practice exams, and plenty of math problems to work out. Many of my classmates downloaded an app from Quizlet.com to answer questions and review when they couldn't be at the computer or have the textbook in front of them. Goodluck!

Besides studying, I find that keeping calm and answering the questions is the best advice. Don't forget the old multiple choice rule. Eliminate two questions immediately and then look at the others.

Take your time to analyze each. And above all - leave your phone in your car when you take the exam. I just read a pretty severe fine for using the phone in the testing area.

If you are studying religiously you will do great! Don't be nervous! Eat good protien before the exam to boost your brain power. Good Luck!!

I created flashcards where I put terms on one side and definitions on the other. I also used this strategy for equations and formulas.

I would read them over and over again, on the toilet, killing time waiting on appointments; I'd keep them with me and fill time while reviewing them.

I would also create flashcards out of the multiple choice questions, putting key terms on one side and turning them into 'fill in the blank' answers.

I did what Broker Martin said as well, and it became more convenient and more interactive with the flashcards. Everyone has their own learning style. Good luck.

Study ALL the multiple choice questions in the book over and over again. Keep going over the choices you got wrong until you got it! I used to give myself a target date and divide my text book and JAM on each section daily. I would go to public places to read and study to advoid distracts at home. Get some MEGGA ear plugs.

Remain calm, study, take your time, know you will pass it, enjoy yourself, study some more.
The real work begins after you get it.

I just studied. That was the best practice. You should have an instructor you can ask as well.
