For instance, I used to have all my exams on memory cards and were kept on a shelf in my dorm room. Now they're stored in the basement of my house. Still, they are difficult to access.
In fact, they might not even be a reliable memorization tool. Let's talk about that in a minute.
Let's first talk about why I'm doing this now. I've been taking my college level exams. I've taken my GRE (Graduate Record Exams) and CAET (College Equivalency Test). And I've taken my ACT.
I don't believe there's much point in keeping these things when I could easily just take them at the local library. And if you keep your exam material in a safe, well lit place, it will still be accessible to you a year or two down the road.
But if you need to access all of your test information right away, you could easily use your college grade book as a guide. But if you take the SAT, take the GRE, take the CAET, your exam material has to be organized and easy to access.
That's where the online study system comes in. It's designed to allow you to access material whenever you want it, so you can review it anytime you need to.
The key here is the "keep it current" part of the online study system. You have access to many new study materials and games each day. If you're going to be able to keep it current, you really need to do it for all of your courses.
A few months ago, I downloaded a brand new study guide on every subject and got all the new study material for each subject. So far, I haven't used these study guides or the practice tests in the way they were intended.
There's also a lot of other materials you can access from these study guides and test products, including games and quizzes. If you're taking these exams, your goal is to get your total score.
When I started taking these exams I kept all my notes and exams in a digital format. That way I could access them and study whenever I wanted. That's not good enough.
You must take all of your exams and study materials and put them in a safe, easily accessible location. Make sure you don't forget anything. If you do, you can download them and save them to a flash drive.
