- Tips for Test
- Now the first exam is coming,
coincidentally in the week of Valentine's Day (or
Memorial Day or whatever), as if the exam is a rendezvous
with something beautiful or easy. The reality, however,
would be "maybe" or "absolutely not"
or in-between. Anyway, tips for exam preparation are not
easy. Sometimes it misguides students to work only on
specific subjects. So I am very reluctant to give ones.
But I can give general advice and this reveals my test
policy: I highly regard your ability (or creativity) in
problem solving. In other words, the problems you will
meet in the test would be slightly different from the
homework problems and the problems in the book. However,
they are the problems you can solve if you could solve
those homework problems and you gave a lot of thoughts in
the process of problem solving. The bottom line is: you
have to know how to apply the laws. Memorizing a method
of solving a specific problem may not work with the test.
So the best advice is check if you fully understand the
three laws. Then, pick several problems randomly from the
book and solve them by yourself. If you cannot solve
them, give them a day or two while reading classnotes
and the book, then tackle them again. If you still are at
odd with the problems, you may want to see your teacher. S/he'll tell you how you solve the problems, and in the
advice process, you may be able to find your weakness.
Then revamp your efforts to strength the part.
