    An Introduction to Exam Preparation

    Assessments are an inevitable part of academia. Students knowledge may be evaluated in projects, presentations, and portfolios; perhaps the most common form of assessment is an exam. Because every exam is unique with different concepts, structure, format, length, and weight adequate preparation is key to your success.

    Exam preparation is nothing new. Even those who avoid it at all costs understand its importance. It is simply a dreaded chore. It is time consuming and daunting to pour over notes and textbooks simply with the hope that you will retain enough to pass. The trouble is, many students waste time studying incorrectly. And perhaps if we learned to work smart and not hard when preparing, it might not be so terrible. We all process information uniquely, so different study strategies are more effective for different learners. The key is making your study habits match your learning style. In this book, you will find everything you need to know about how to study smart and get the most out of exam preparation.
