A quick quiz to test your study skills and knowledge - please choose the correct answer: 1. The surest way to remember important information is to read it once and then reread it immediately. True False 2. As I read, I like to relate what I'm learning to what I already know. True False 3. I always ask "Why?" questions, such as "Why did that happen?" or "Why would that be true?" True False 4. I tend to wait until shortly before an exam to start studying. True False 5. I love using flash cards to test my knowledge as I prepare. True False
The great thing about this quiz is generally, there are no "right" or "wrong" answers - however, if you normally find yourself in a bad study situation or you've found yourself answering "false" for questions 1, 2, 3, and 5 and "true" for question 4 - there may be some improvements you can make to make sure you are getting the most out of your material - and yourself - for upcoming examinations. Rereading information, knowing the correct things to highlight and study, as well as focusing on concepts - and leaving enough time to study - are some of the most important building blocks to get better grades, and performing better on assessments. I can help you to develop these skills and habits, as well as help you to discover what methods may work best for you!
Choose the answer that makes the most sense grammatically: 1. Air pollution is obviously one of the major ......... of city life. a) references b) disadvantages c) attempts d) definitions e) expressions
The correct answer is (b) disadvantages. This is because air pollution would be considered a negative aspect of city life, a.k.a. a disadvantage.
Determine whether each of the following numbers are solutions to the given equation. (a) (x=6) in x^2 - 36 = 0 (b) (z= -2) in 3(z + 1) = 4z - 5
(a) We first plug the proposed solution into the equation: (6)^2 - 36 = 0 36 - 36 = 0 0 = 0 THIS WORKS So, what we are asking here is does the right side equal the left side after we plug in the proposed solution - because the left and right sides match, we can say that x = 6 satisfies this equation. (b) In this case, we do essentially the same thing that we did in the previous example - plug in the number given, and see if it satisfies the equation. 3 ( (-2) + 1) = 4(-2) - 5 3 (-1) = (-8) - 5 -3 = -13 THIS DOES NOT WORK Because the left side (-3) is not the same as the right side (-13), this equation is not satisfied and therefore, z = -2 is NOT a solution.
