College Entrance Test Preparation

You have submitted your application forms and other requirements to your university/college choice. Now you have to get ready for the tough assessment test. Here are some useful tips on how to prepare for your upcoming entrance test.

1. Try to research on what kind of test and test subjects are included. You may ask questions or visit some sample assessment online for this. It will give you an overview of what the test is all about. Knowing what kind of test and the test subjects will let you anticipate on what things you should prepare for or to focus to. For example you are not that good in verbal reasoning but it is on your test set then you may want to read some materials regarding such topic to increase the chance of passing the assessment.

2. Do practice! One way of giving yourself a lead in passing this test is to answer practice set. There are tons of such materials available online or in bookstores. Take the advantage of testing your knowledge, judgment and problem solving skills through this dry run testing. It will give you hints on what facet you should review more as well as what testing strategies worked for you. Most examinee’s mistake is that they tend to underestimate the exam as a common achievement test. Bear in mind that passing this test is important to reach that goal. You can never risk it so it is better to review and practice.

3. Avoid psyching yourself out the night before the test. It is inevitable to feel stressed and nervous but try to relax and ease your mind off it a little bit. It is important that you get enough sleep and rest about 7-8 hours. This would help you perform your best during the examination. Leave your problems or any mind boggling things at home so that your mind will be free from any distractions and you can focus on answering the exam. Do not forget to eat right before taking the test. Remember you need energy to finish the test well.

4. Know the test schedule, things to bring and requirements needed. It is important to set all the things you need such as pencils, papers, id’s and other requirements ahead of time or the night before. Pack it all up so that you can just grab it on the day of the examination. Check the schedule of the test. Make sure you arrive at the testing center at least one hour earlier before the set time. This will allow you to relax and check if there are any things you forgot to prepare before taking the exam.
