The following are tips for taking my exams. My exams are easy if you always attend my class, and actively join in our discussions.
- Review your notes and not your textbook. I gather information from many sources, so the lessons that we have discussed and you took note in the classroom are the most likely materials that will come out in my exams.
- The list of postulates, theorems, and corollaries is the bible of our geometry class. Always remember and understand what each statement means and how to demonstrate it.
- Always bring a ruler, protractor, pencil, compass, pen, and lots of papers.
- Check the number of pages of the test papers and ask for the missing copy from the proctor or test administrator if they are incomplete.
- Answer the easiest test items first. Handle the not easy ones later. Do not spend too much time on one item if you don’t know the answer.
- Ask for some clarification from the proctor if the test items are vague or are not clear to you. But don’t ask for the answers :-)
- If you have enough time—review your answers. Do not pass your paper(s) in a hurry. Remember, in my exams, you don't get additional points for passing early.
- Finally an advice for you—PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE.
