answered them with full understanding of the
command terms?
• Green study guide to help you to clarify some

Study tips
• Strive for understanding, not memorization.
• A note on past papers:
– Try doing the exam paper without any aid. Only use
sources when necessary.
– Mark your papers carefully, including points.
– Edit your learning log as necessary.
– Find patterns. Identify which questions are asked
frequently in exams.
– WRITE & DRAW.
• Keep a running list of things you are not sure
about. Time to meet with Ms. N.
