Large multiple choice test can be difficult. Especially when there is a set amount of time you have to complete the test in. Time management then becomes an issue. During this past week, as a class we took a practice multiple choice test for the AP test. It was fifty five questions about different short pieces of wrting that were given to us. We had about one hour to complete it. So we could not just take as much time as we wanted for one question.
Through this experience we learned to move quickly while taking our tests. A stradegy that I learned that could be of some help in that situation was to skip over the questions that are more difficult, and just answer the easy ones first. Then You can go back to those questions later. That way, you are likely to get more answers right.
Another stragedy we talked about was to look at the questions before reading the passages. That way you know what to look for while you read the writing.
Taking that practice test was very useful because we are now a little more prepared for the AP test than we were before, and we now know what to expect for part of the AP test. Not only does taking practice tests prepare us all for the AP test fr AP Literature, but it also helps to prepare us all for other large multiple choice tests we might have to take, especially any other AP tests.
