Top 4 Strategies to Prepare for Your Online Exams


Top 4 Strategies to Prepare for Your Online Exams

Writing exams can be challenging and stressful, particularly if it’s been a while since you`ve been in school. But they don’t have to be if you prepare well. Here are four tips that can help your get organized for your next online exam.


 1. Prepare Summary Sheets

While reading the module material, summaries will help deepen your understanding of the material. Make a list of important terms and their definitions and even formulas. Read through your notes right before the exam. Remember the exams are open book so your notes can be used when taking your exams.


 2. Study Review Questions  

After each section within a module and at the end of the modules you will find questions reviewing this material. Remember generating your own answer first will help you learn the material.

3. Check out the Online Resource Center and Forums

The Online Resource Center and Forums contain additional learning resources where we have tutorials on difficult course concepts and problem areas. The student forum is a great way to dig deeper into the content, review questions and problem areas experienced by other students.

4. Complete the Practice Exams

Many of the program modules have practice exams. They follow the same format as the actual online exams. Do these practice exam at least 3 to 4 times as you will find some questions change and new values will be inserted into the questions so you have to solve for a new answer.  Once you can get a good result on the practice exam you are ready for the final.

Practice Exam Question

If you apply these learning strategies, particularly those that match your learning style, you will be in good shape to perform well on your final exams.
