STUDY TIPS 1. Can I talk about the topic with confidence? If not, practice. Tell everyone you know about the Antibiotic Crisis , Newton's Law, Acceleration, etc. 2. Do you have the 4 equations memorized? 3. Do you understand how to apply key concepts to the real world? 4. Practice writing hypothesizes. 5. Review YouTube videos, Neto's Website, and your own Digital Notebooks. 6. Write and rewrite tricky definitions, formulas and key concepts. 7. Day of the test, read the entire questions and answer ALL parts of the question.
