You can come up with a Standard Notation Worksheet (or screened) to help you write out sample tests from your examination. A Screener is a structured method of preparing test questions and answering them, which you can use as a means of learning test taking skills.
The purpose of a structured test taking system is to enable you to cover the same questions repeatedly without needing to guess what the answer will be. This is how you are able to effectively learn how to answer various types of questions correctly. Often, the test taker may need to repeat a question more than once to get the right answer, and using a structured system allows him to do this effectively.
The best type of structure is one that has been proven to work for many people and then has been written in a suitable book. For example, if you choose the ‘Common Sense for the Practical Examinations’ book, you’ll find that it is often good at developing a structure that is easy to adapt to your own situation. It is also the best available for teaching exams.
There are plenty of arrangements you can make, although the most basic structure would be to record the following in an arrangement of the alphabet. For example, ‘ABBA’. These can then be used as they need to be.
What you need to do is write down some different examples of questions in the format. For example, ‘ASVAB’ would be written in A-Z, while ‘NAQA’ would be written in N-Z. After doing this, try to make a comparison between the answers you give in the above structure and ones you give in the actual exams.
Always try to use the formal format of Standard Notation Worksheets. Try to look at things from the point of view of a reader, and give answers that will make sense to them.
To make sure that you really understand the questions in the specific exam, you’ll need to be able to make a few guesses about them, and you’ll need to be able to draw conclusions about how the questions relate to others that you have studied. This is where you have to employ your common sense.
If you’ve studied before and you are not a good candidate for a standardized examination, then it is likely that you will have a hard time answering these questions. This is where it can help to look at your prep work and learn some good tips on how to study. Also, be able to see that you know why a test is being given and what its purpose is.
