The best way to prepare for a state exam is to get the most accurate, up to date information and study as much as possible. There are several resources available to help with any exam preparation. Before the actual exam, you should rest and plan to arrive early.
The library, online and local book stores are all good places to search for study guides and exam outlines. Study guides are an excellent way to become familiar with the type of information and the question format on the exam. If the exam has recently been updated or changed, the prior year's exams and answers are sometimes released to the public for review.
An exam preparation course is another effective method available for most exams. The course can vary in length and styles, and it can be delivered face-to-face or by using an online, virtual classroom. It's a great option for anyone who prefers the classroom, group style of learning over the textbook.
Take time to review the material that will be on the exam, and also read the instructions for guidelines and details. Other important details included date and time, length of exam and items allowed present during the exam. Instructions are also available for most exams in multiple languages.
