Math Exam Preparation: How to Study for a Math Exam

When it comes to math, practice makes perfect- that’s why your teacher gives you many tedious homework problems! Although many people try to study for math exam by simply memorizing equations and formulas, the best way to learn them is to use them. Do your homework, start studying early, and ask your teacher or classmates for help if you run into any problems.

After school, look over all the notes you took in class that day for about 20 minutes. As exam approaches, review your notes for each chapter or unit more thoroughly. Pay attention to example problems provided in class because these will help you know how a given formula or procedure works.

Students who join a study group perform well on math exams. Different people understand concepts in different ways. A problem that you cannot solve may be solved easily by a study partner. If all students in the group are confused something, you should ask the teacher for help.

Most classes at least suggested, or have assigned, problems that the tutor feels are most useful. Math exam problems are mostly similar to homework problems. Therefore, doing your daily homework is like taking a practice test each day.

It’s more useful to understand how formulas are derived than simply memorizing them. At first, memorization is a good, but understanding how a formula works by doing many practice problems will increase your chances of passing with flying colors.
