Instructables
Picture of How to study for a middle school test
In this instructable, I will (attempt) to help you guys studying for tests.
Remember, ALL TEACHERS ARE DIFFERENT, THESE IDEAS DO NOT APPLY TO ALL OF THEM!
(sorry about bold, I don't want to get hate about it.)
This is meant for slackers or kids entering middle school, you hardcore studyers don't take this serious.

Step 1: Take Notes

This is the most important part of it. If you don't have good notes, you don't know what to study from. Most teachers will give hints, (repeating themselves, emphasising, or just plain saying it) that it is important. If you have a review, take notes from the review. Most of
my teachers take reviews from the test themselves, it will save you.

Tips:
Write fast and neat
Don't put your pen down
Use abbreviations (EX: December 25 = Dec. 25) They will save you time
Details shouldn't be too important, unless your teacher is nice and gives you LOTS of time to write.

EX of Average Notes
(insert sloppy handwriting here) Bob was born December 25 at 5:00 in the morning

EX of Good Notes (Fast and to the point atleast)
Bob was born Dec. 25, 5 AM


Step 2: Reviewing for the test

This is also an important part of studying.

Ideas for reviews:
Outlines-Major and Minor Details
Fill in the Blanks-Bob was born _______ at ______ in the morning
Word Banks- Take vocab words and people, and make easier fill in the blanks
Short Essays- A paragraph or two about an important topic in the chapter
Flashcards- Vocab, Dates, People, and Ideas from the chapter

Step 3: Test Taking

Find out as much as you can about the test, WITHOUT cheating, obviously
Find out:
How many questions?
Is there an Essay?
Is there a bonus?
How much time will we have?

and whatever else your teacher will tell you

Tip: Don't bug your teacher, or they won't tell you anything of course.

Remember to rate, follow, and tell me how you did on your test afterward.
