What are some ways you like to prepare for or study for tests?
Those sound great. Have you tried any other methods? Maybe using note cards with bullet points on them? Or taking notes on paper? If so, have you used highlighters to color-code topics and subject importance? Sometimes, it helps trying different methods and ways until you find what works best for you.

How do I know if the website I am looking at has truthful and credible information?
That is a great question! There are many things you can look for to validate the credibility of a website. The first thing to look for is an author. Does the website provide a name? Is there any other information about that author? What about a date, is there one listed? If so, how recent is it? Try to make sure the date listed is relevant to your research! If you read the webpage, does it make good grammatical sense or do you see a lot of errors and typos? This could be a red flag. Some other things to look at are is it a .com, .org, or .edu domain? Does the author or authors provide information for their sources? While all these things might not seem important, when you look for all of them together, they can tell you a lot about the sources that you are finding online.
