I have an habit of reading the books from the back page. I will select/guess the important questions from the last lesson to 1st lesson and read. How do you prepare or prepared for your exams when you are in studies. Share with me.

I do just the opposite because I usually remember best the last things that I have heard so I usually don't even have the need to read my last lessons.I start from the beginning to remind what it was all about and I usually read each chapter twice because I have a kind of a visul memory and remember things as I see them some times.

hi mokka you and I both have photographic memories. I would see the page in my lecture notes where the answers were to the questions and would ace an exam easily because I saw them in my mind.

Thid id great I think cause I know many people who sit reading one and the same thing for hours and cannot remember it.And I don't remember sitting at one place studying all day long.No matter how much I have to read I manage to do it just because I remember faster.

Hi mokkka and Hatley. Most of my friends are similar to you both. They always ask me "why you will read from last. Why can't you read from the first." I used to tell, first lessons if we read last that will be remembered and soon we go to exams the first lessons questions will appear first so it is easy to write all the points. If we start writing in a good way 1st question then automatically we can answer for other questions too. Otherwise for the 1st question itself we will get annoyed and we may lack concentration on the next question. Thanks for your sharing. Have a wonderful joy day.

i am a last night reader for the exams and for me it is not possible to read all the text in the last night. that is why i selected the way of reading the lecture note that the teacher had given to us and that is the only reason i am able to pass in all the exams. but if you can study daily , then dont follow my way, i think your way is better than mine

Hi sherielapjat, most of the people will do this and some are very excited to read. I have seen people who read at the 11th hour will also get through the exams. I think they are really intelligent people like you. I feel if they can read from the beginning how nice they can become 1st the in class. Thanks for your sharing and suggestion. Have a joyful day.

You mentioned that you are having a habit of reading the books from the back page. But you are reading from the last chapter to first one. It is not a rare thing. Maximum of people do that for preparing the exams. I read sometimes like that. But reading from the last page to first one is a very very difficult task.

Actually I rarely make a review when we have exam in school we I am not that kind of person who are dedicated in studying I just use all the stock knowledge I gain from our every day lesson. Luckily I always pass the test and now I already graduated. I think I just have good memory in lesson unlike in other thing well all I do when I am answering a test paper is analyzing the question because most of the answer is already in the question. And also if I make a review before the exam I experience it I become more confuse about it I think the best time for preparing for exam is a week before and get a simple question and answer with your friend. Me and some of my classmate do it in our every class its like a pop quiz everyday, its like I'm going to make a question and they will answer it and they do the same thing they ask and we answer and see if our answer is correct. That is how I prepare for my exam I hope you learn something and I suggest don't do what I do the "not reviewing" you still need to review because unlike me I am a easy going person.

If I am reading a book for pleasure, then I read from the beginning to the end. But if I'm in a timed test with an unseen text, I first read the questions, and then go back and read the text. If it is a very long text, then I read question, read, question read. until I finish the test. Good luck!

What I did was reading the teacher's lecture sheet or books he recommended several until the exam began. Always this worked well and a high score came.

When I prepare the exam I used to prepare from middle of the book and from that I used to select the topic which seems important to the exam.Sometime in some subject I used to open the book wherever I like the topic.

hi jotomy with me I studied and studied my notes and when I was taking my exams manymany years ago Icould see the page in my mind that I needed for the answers to the various questions. I had a photographic memory which really helped me to get pretty darned good grades. I went back to the U of Ca Irvine to get my final two years and my BA in English.I graduated at age 56 with a B average due to a unfortunate grade in Latin Grammar.
