Learning Skills and Strategies

Learning strategies are ways to understand, remember, and apply the knowledge you learn.

Tips for Exam Preparation

There are several different types of exams. Talk to your instructor about your exam so you can be well-prepared.

These documents will help you prepare for your exams by offering helpful ideas for preparation, common test terms, and some general tips for writing different types of exams (multiple choice, true/false, short answer). If you would like further support in helping to prepare for exams, book an appointment with the Learning Skills Strategist!
