For those of you taking practice exams, what is your review process after grading the exam. i went through every question online but it doesn't seem like it is sticking as well as i would like it to.

After a review exam test, I relax for a bit, but try to come back to the exam in about an hour while it's still kind of fresh in my head. There is a link to go back and review your last exam on the exam start page.

I go through every question- the ones I got right or make sure I got the right answer the right way (and the fastest way because time is always a factor). On the ones I get wrong, I often create a flashcard of the concept and add it to my HUGE list of favorite questions. I try to review my favorite questions from time to time and will definitely do this more and more with the test coming up. That way, I hope not to make the same mistakes twice. I'd say for each 60 review exam, there are maybe 1 or 2 q's that I just say f*&k it to- I probably will get it wrong again and again and again, but oh well. On those, I try to figure out how I maybe can get it down to 2 answers pretty fast and guess.

maybe after a few tests, check out and see if you're making the same mistakes over and over again. i know that on statistical q's, I often mess up easy math- maybe for me, I need to do a few extra practice problems so I nail that one q on the test.

anyone else have good tips for how to start getting scores on practice exams up after you take a few? I'm all ears.

I am using your study notes and I know of at least 5 other friends of mine who used it and passed the exam last Dec. Keep up your great work!
