Hi and Hello to all mylot members. Even though I am a newbie here, but I am fortunate for having 'goodsign' as my referrer. She spent her time via email to guide me the practical way to be on mylot as an active member. So before I started this discussion I had three days training with all the link buttons on here and the operations. Thanks 'goodsign'. So my question here, as next year I will be facing a vital general examination that will indicate whether I am qualified for University application, in Malaysia general call SPM i.e. Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia or in English it known as MCE i.e. Malaysia Certificate of Education. Anybody here can sincerely give me fruitful tips for me to gain new easy methods of learning and making reference to my school's text books. An effective to score in all subjects. There 10 subjects for me including mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics,..., etc.. I need your help as October 2008 the exam will be held. So my one year period from now and I have to take it seriously. Any idea from members, I believe with your learning tips would help me to sit for that examination with wisdom. Thank you very much everybody for your contributions. **prettyhanan**

REgarding examinations: There are several category of students: Viz, 1. One who does not want to be told, because they have a good grasping and expressing capacity. 2. Some people need to read and reread and memorzie to write in exams. 3. Some people even after reading several times nothing gets into their head so they are poor performers. It is always better to study the subject matter on day to day basis and conduct review of it every day so that it is registered in your mind and you can answer those even if you are asked when you are fast asleep. Take a subject, find out what portions are covered for examination, study 2 to 3 years questionpapers, try to answer those. Then go through the book/notes. After studying make your own short one line remembreance note. By looking at that note, you should be able to tell or write 10 to 15 sentences. It is better to write in your own hand writing, 2 or 3 times, so thatit is registered in your mind. We are a family of 9 and my grand mother used to tell that night the students should sleep. Early morning sat 4 a.m.or 5 a.m. one should get up and study. One should not sit on the comfortable bed, because there is tendency to fall asleep. During exams time you should only revise and not study from the beginning and trying to understand.

Thanks my dear, SSH123. I read your response thoroughly and had copy paste to my word file. And I am here to enhance my English language as I felt that my English is not so good. My referrer said at mylot I can practice my English learning by communicating through postings and responses from mylot members. Thank you very much SSH123 for your sincere contributions. **prettyhanan**
