Examination Guide
This guide is intended to help you prepare for any important exams.

1.Plan Revision
Make sure that all your notes are in order and up to date.
Find out the date and length of each exam.
Draw up a revision timetable,and stick to it.

2.Preparation
Obtain copies of syllabus/past papers/revision guides.
Read through your notes,highlighting or rewriting key words/phrases.
Aim to work in 45 minutes stretches,taking 15 minute breaks.

3.Before Each Exam
Re-read through your notes but take a quality break,e.g have a bath/shower.
Make sure that you have all the equipment needed,including re-fills for your pen(s).
Make sure that you are comfortable and have a light snack/meal before each exam.

4.In The Exam
Read the instructions carefully-do the right number of questions.
Plan your time-allocate enough time for each question you must answer.
Answer the questions set;not the one you hoped for.

5.At The End Of The Exam
When you think you have finished,check your script for mistakes and complete any unfinished sections.
Cross out any rough work you do not want to get marked.
Ensure that all diagrams have titles and are fully labeled.

6.After The Exam
Do not worry about the exam you have just taken.
Have a rest/meal or take part in a leisure activity.
Begin to concentrate on the next exam.

Examination Guide
Can I add a bit, having studied memory for my psychology undergrad?
Study in half hour increments; you hold the first and last 15 minutes of your session the best. Take a moment to get up, walk around, focus on something else for a few minutes before sitting back down. Yes, this may break "concentration", but either way, that information was going to become fuzzy. Better off getting a quick break rather than stressing over studying for so long and not remembering the information all the same, right? This is also why teachers continue to drone on about the same thing over and over; if they tried to pack a bunch of information into one session, you'd never remember it all! Plus, a great bit of remembering something is repetition, repetition, repetition.
If you can't remember something, consistently look back over the information. Don't sit attempting to put it in your mind all at one. You "solidify" pieces of info in your mind by recalling them several times over, generally over the course of a few days. Recall may be the most important thing about remembering something. Recall=repetition, but at different times. Try looking at a bit of info every hour, repeat it to yourself 3-5 times, then move passed it, whether you believe you actually remember it. You'll see after a few hours, that info will come much easier to you than if you sat there for many hours trying to remember it all at once!
When you're looking to memorize a difficult topic, make it relevant to yourself/pair it with some information you know well. This is the absolute best way to remember anything! "Alexander the Great died (possibly by) poisoning in 323". "My brother Alex, who is 32 got food poisoning 3 days ago". (Assuming you have a brother named Alex who is 32 and got food poisoning three days prior). This is how people with spectacular memory actual remember things (as we've researched so far). The difference is that they don't make these connections consciously.
Oh, and I feel I should elaborate on mnemonic devices. They can work - but they work better if you relate them to your life. "King Phillip Came Over For Good Soup"; well, that's good and all for remembering taxonomy, but now you have to actively try to remember some "fact" about "King Phillip". Unless you're a historian, you probably don't care too much about King Phillip, and this is nothing but a series of sounds you need to memorize. Now, say your best friend's name is Kathy Peters, and recently she dropped by when you had a cold. Something more like "Kathy Peters came over, got sick" is going to stick in your mind much better because it's something you know to have happened, and now you're probably having to bring her soup because you feel bad for getting your friend sick.
I hate to break it to you....but you remember things best by studying in the same conditions as the room you'll take the test in. Is the classroom always cold? Crank down the AC. Is it white? Find a white room. Is there music playing? Usually not, so don't go for your ipod during a study session. Our minds are VERY attuned to our senses, so, unconsciously, you always take cues from your surroundings. Environment can actually be the difference between and A and a B if it's a matter or a few questions.

And one trick from my own book:
Take your exam backwards. Start from the last question and work your way back. Several times I've found clues to questions that came before because the teacher/professor has the expectation that you'll do it in order (i.e. "What is ____", then a few pages later it may say "Knowing that ____ is _____, what would you do in such and such circumstance?" ). This is helpful for high school and college.
