Tests can be very boring to study for and it's hard to remember everything you need to know. This is partly because there is too much unorganized information on whatever you are studying off of and your brain is not functioning enough to remember any of it because it is too uninteresting and confusing. So I came up with this way to easily study what you will need for the test and find it just a bit more interesting.

Making and using a study guide notebook
First, you will need to get a lined notebook. It doesn't have to be a very thick one, it will just be holding what you need to study for upcoming exams. Every time you have an upcoming exam, write the title of the exam at the top (for example; Chapter 6 geometry test) and under that write down all of the information you need to know. You can organize the information using bullet points or other organized methods. Make sure to include what you need to know, but don't get into too much detail. You don't want to overwhelm your brain.
-Here is an example page of a study guide notebook preparing for a math quiz:

Your information might not fit all on one page (I couldn't fit the last two definitions) so you can just use another one (although keep in mind that notebook paper fits a lot more writing than the image I included). If you want to make the studying more interesting, put stickers or drawings on the pages of your notebook after filling in the material. It will help keep your brain awake and interested and may even help you memorize the material if your brain associates the information to the image. Remember just to include what you need for the test in the notes and not absolutely everything (this quiz is about congruent triangles but I wouldn't include the definition of what a triangle is).

Other benefits of having a study guide notebook:
  • You can refer back to it if you forget things from past units or to study for the SOLs
  • You don't have to fish around in papers and scan your course notebook when you want to study (it's all right there)
  • You may find things you forgot you had to know for the test while you were looking for things to include
  • It's more organized and makes studying more interesting
  • Probably the greatest benefit; you are writing everything down which helps you remember it!
Questions/Comments? If you have any of those you can include them in the comments. You can find more tutorials in my profile; and good luck on your next test!

*steals all the info*
One thing though, because this is the weird random crap that bothers me, SOLs are only in VA. In other states they call them other things--I doubt anyone who reads your blog wouldn't be able to tell what you mean and/or care, but just an fyi.

I got like a 66 on the regents for it lol, other classes were in the 90s. Math is hard to understand for me.

My geometry teacher is not even a teacher and she makes it exceptionally difficult to get good grades. I got almost all A's and then I got a 27% on a quiz and my average grade went down a whole letter grade and she wouldn't even let me finish it.
