Keep a Mistake Log!
Reserve a section of your study notebook for keeping track of your mistakes. Write down the questions you missed and work through the correct way to solve them, really digging into where you went wrong.
Paying close attention to your mistakes as you practice will reveal your patterns and help you avoid those pitfalls on test day. Plus, this in-depth review will get you into the test-makers’ mindset, and you’ll be better able to identify the traps they’re setting for test takers. Make sure to keep track of near misses too! Like that question you got right, but really it was a lucky guess between two choices.
Mistake logs help you understand WHY the answer is wrong and WHY the right answer is the correct one.
