  2. How to prepare effectively for an exam 1. Make sure you will collect all lecture notes and related material at least 2 weeks before the exam. After that this task will be almost impossible to complete. 2. You DEFINITELY need to get some past papers for this exam. Usually you can get them from the library, university web site or from your own tutor. In some cases past papers may be accompanied with answers. 3. 1-2 weeks before the exam talk to your tutor and ask him or her what kind of questions there will be on exam. In 70% of cases you will receive very valuable information which will significantly help you to prepare. Another important aspect is the number and worth of questions. 4. Carefully plan your time for exam preparation. You should give yourself at least 2 full days to prepare. If you are working – take several days off work – it worth it. 5. Start preparation from an early morning. Switch off mobile phone, TV, don’t check your emails and avoid any other disturbances. Make sure you have enough high-calories food (like chocolate). 6. Firstly read all your lecture notes. Vast majority of exams is based on the lecture notes (only or mainly) therefore you don’t need to read all course-recommended books. If you don’t understand something – talk to your classmates, read books, search Internet. Make sure you understand everything. 7. Secondly, answer ALL past exam papers and check your answers. It is useful to collaborate with your classmates because in this case group work may help you to avoid some mistakes. 8. Thirdly, analyse all previous exam papers and information received from your tutor. Try to estimate what kind of exams there will be. Then, assess your capabilities. For example, if you are good with numbers and calculations and KNOW that there will be some questions of such kind on exam, it is advisable for you to concentrate on reviewing techniques related to such questions. Try to plan the questions which you are going to answer (if you are more or less sure they will appear). On 99% of exams students have choice to answer 4 questions from 6 for example), therefore you SHOULD NOT know everything! It is sometimes better to leave some areas and to concentrate on others. 9. If you have a chance – talk to someone from previous year who took this exam. Quite often you can receive some valuable information for them. 10. Make sure you get good sleep before the exam. Many students are much stressed and can’t sleep. Try to use your own tricks to avoid it, for example go to bed earlier, read something, don’t watch TV and etc. 11. Wake up at least 2 hours before you need to leave the house. If you want – do some reading and reviewing, but not much. Eat well. Don’t forget to take all of your lecture notes with you to the university, because you may wish to look at them to clarify something at the last minutes. 12. Take your own stationary: several good pens, calculator and etc. 13. And lastly, when the exam has started – DON’T PANIC even if you seem not to know anything. Relax and write everything you know. Watch the time carefully, so that you have approximately equal amount of time for each questions. Hope this may help you...
  3. Here is one from me: The Computer Poem A Computer was something on TV From a Science Fiction show of note Window was something you hated to clean And Ram was the father of a goat. Meg was the name of a girlfriend And Gig was a job for the nights Now they all mean different things And that really Mega Bytes. An Application was for employment A Program was a TV show A Cursor used profanity A Keyboard was a piano. A Memory was something that you lost with age A CD was a bank account And if you had a 3-inch floppy You hoped nobody found out. Compress was something you did to the garbage Not something you did to a file And if you Unzipped anything in public You'd be in jail for a while. Log on was adding wood to the fire Hard drive was a long trip on the road A Mouse pad was where a mouse lived And a Backup happened to your commode. Cut you did with a pocket knife Paste you did with glue A Web was a spider's home And a Virus was the flu. I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper And the Memory in my head. I hear nobody's been killed in a Computer crash But when it happens they wish they were dead "The more intelligent you are, the more tenuous your grip on sanity."
