Any good books on how to prep for tests?

Asked by hairypalm (889points) April 8th, 2008

I have taken test all my life. I have been in air force for almost 6 years. I find my self having a bit of trouble testing these days. Today I applied for the border patrol and I need to brush up. Or anything else that would help me.

Are you looking for something having to do with general standardized tests, as in helpful tips, etc.? Are there any specific study guides for your test? I’m studying for the LSAT and there are classes people can take for this. If I have any tips they would be these:
1. Get enough sleep
2. Eat food that won’t bog you down. I stopped drinking caffeine, as I can focus better without it.
3. Try to find someone else to study with, if suits you.
4. Cut down on Fluther

ok being obsessive about studying and testing here what I learned from all the books I read and personal experience. You will need to put in some time to take the test. Go to your local library first and check out a test prep book (ask the librarian for help). If they don’t have the book they can order it for you from another library. Then time yourself with the practice test the same time as the real one. Without more info like what test you planning this is all the advice we can give
