Now that you have spent so much time studying for your Calculus AB exam, how can you be fully prepared? It’s no longer sufficient to merely have a vague idea of what the test will involve. You should know where you want to be at the end of the test. This is why preparing for Calculus AB is a great idea.
For this section, you will need to make sure that you are prepared well. You need to review all the topics from last year. Start by reading more of last year’s textbooks. Focus on the topics that you learned the most, and test your understanding on them. Make sure that your notes are current, though.
Practice Calculus problems until they are easy. That means planning for each problem ahead of time, and using the right techniques to solve them. Start by planning the first few steps to solve any problem. Do not forget to multiply both sides by the number of sides before working out the solution. You should also work out your maximum strategy, so that you solve the problem in the most efficient way. As you become more skilled at tackling Calculus AB questions, you will be ready for the harder versions.
You should spend more time familiarizing yourself with the types of solutions you can arrive at by solving problems using algebraic functions. Look up all the synonyms for each function on the web, and learn them. Then spend some time familiarizing yourself with graph paper. This is not necessary for a Calculus exam, but will help you get used to working on graphs. It will also prepare you for some of the easier equations.
The last few questions include Practical Calculus. On these types of questions, you should already have some idea of what you want to say. Write down your answers in advance, even if you think you don’t understand them. If you don’t understand your answer, write it down again, and try to find the answer on the paper. After you find the correct answer, write it in the place where you wrote it. Do not give up, even if your first guess doesn’t make sense.
Time Management is also important. This is especially true for the fast paced exam. You need to be able to allocate your time efficiently. The time you spend studying will help you pace yourself throughout the exam.
If you prepare for your calculus readiness exam before class starts, you will have more confidence when it comes time to take the test. You will be able to answer the questions quickly and have a better chance of passing. Be sure to set your study schedule and stick to it. Taking the exam before class is one of the best ways to improve your chances of success.
