Studying for a Quiz

This entry was inspired by my two quizzes earlier today. One in my Child and Adolescent Development class and another in my Literature I class, thanks to Mrs. Eleonor R. Teopy and Mrs. Ann Magsisi-Templonuevo.

If I had the time to prepare, this is what I would have done:

1. Make a reviewer.
2. Read over and over again, understand, memorize if I can.
3. Sleep early.
4. Wake up early so I still have time to review again.

But I did not. Not because they were surprise quizzes but because (thanks to my memory) I forgot about them. So here's what I did.

1. Pray that we have to do something first so I can cram. (Thankfully, Ma'am Teopy handed out photocopies of the Children's Rights and Significant Theories on Child and Adolescent Development lists first and Ma'am Ann had to write down our names to our seat plan)

2. Read. Remember important things especially the ones that are most likely to appear in the enumeration part of the quiz. Try to remember the keywords in definition of important words.

3. Pray. Ask for miracle.

4. After you're done, stop worrying. There's nothing else you can do about it but be prepared next time, as said by Ma'am Teopy.

Well, I got a pretty high score in Literature (18/20), but I don't know about my Child and Adolescent Development quiz. Maybe I'll know on Wednesday.
