Some tips for studying and preparing for the U.S. Constitution test include reading the Constitution in sections, creating a condensed study guide, making flash cards, taking online quizzes and forming a study group. Another study technique is spaced repetition, which involves breaking up information into small chunks and studying it over a period of time.
The U.S. Constitution is a long document with many parts, including amendments and the Bill of Rights. Instead of reading it all the night before and being overwhelmed, try reading it in small sections with breaks in between.
Creating a condensed study guide allows students to make notes on the most important information or what they are least familiar with so they can be reviewed at a different time.
Another tip is to make flash cards and to test knowledge. There are also quizzes on the Constitution available online, such as ConstiutionFacts.com, ProProfs.com and Quia.com. Taking quizzes allows students to discover gaps in their knowledge so they can narrow the focus of their studying.
Study groups are helpful in studying because it allows students to share notes, answer each other's questions, test one another and come up with fun ways to remember all of the material. Different study techniques work for different people, so try various methods to discover the most effective ones.
