Practice Test Know-How

Practice tests are another weapon in your arsenal for CLEP/DSST success!  They are not necessarily intended to test what you already know, but to supplement your learning and to continue to BUILD your knowledge of the subject.  Don’t expect to know all or even most of the answers the first time you take a practice test.  Expect to repeat each practice test more than once.  ALWAYS read each answer explanation completely, paying particular attention to terms, people and concepts you don’t know.  Research those items by Googling them, looking them up on Wikipedia, your textbook, or any other resource you choose.  Take some notes for later review.  As you repeat taking each individual practice test, your scores should begin to climb until they are in the range of 80% or more correct.  Only then have you gleaned all you can from that particular practice test.
