OK, everyone, we’re all back from our Fourth of July picnics and we’re all aware that the exam is looming in the not-so-far distance. It’s time to settle down into a comfortable rhythm as these last few days before the IBLCE Exam approach. I’m hoping to give you a little insight and a little encouragement each day.
Tip for today: Look at that stack of books that is 6 feet tall and realize that you can’t re-read all of that material again. Give yourself a SMALL number–I would say fewer than 5–and keep those materials front and center from now until the exam. Studying “everything” will only make you feel more anxious.
Now, pick ONE topic you feel fairly confident with, and one topic that you feel shaky with. Ask yourself: What could they ever ask me about my “good” topic that I might not know? (Oh, there is something….) Then, ask yourself: What is it about my one “bad” topic that I could master without much effort?
Try a few of those, and see if you can streamline some of your studying.
