HELPFUL STUDY TIPS

 

Set aside study time: Don't wait till October to start your studying! Give yourself some time. Start in June and designate two or three nights a week. Create a schedule and stick to it.
Make use of practice exams: The practice exams will help you move through the steps of the problem. Different practice exams challenge different aspects of your knowledge.
Practice problems by hand: Work as many practice problems that you can by using your references. Practice makes perfect.
Start your own study notebook: Highlight the items you may need to reference during test day. Remember it is open book, no loose papers.
Make sure you bring the needed supplies: a watch, calculator, extra batteries, and patience.
 
Get reacquainted with your calculator: Can't use computers to take the test.
 
Flag sections of your reference book: Make sure you can find the topic quickly and easily.
 
Be ready for a battle: If the first few questions are tough, move on to the next one.
 
Engage your PE peers on their helpful studying hints.
 
Be sure to answer all the questions.
