You’re sitting there in your living room, pretending to study for your upcoming PCRedCom test. You have all of the books and materials that you need, and you set up your laptop on the coffee table in front of you so that it’s easy to text or check social media. You’re sort of half listening to the test, and half doodling on your notebook paper. You’re really not listening to what your instructor is saying at all.
Kids who are good at studying PCRedCom see a lot of positives when they do well on their tests and study. That is a good thing. That can give kids a good head start on their learning. They understand how easy it is to learn. When you have that confidence, then it’s so much easier to enjoy the time spent learning and take things at your own pace. It’s also much more likely to be fun, because you understand from experience that you can get the hang of things faster if you work at it seriously, rather than just rapidly memorizing the answers for the test as quickly as possible like some students do.
What is your advice to students who focus more on perfecting their PCRedCom knowledge rather than really learning what they need to know?
This is a fun question. I like it because it’s very relevant to so many people. This can be an issue with any subject, but it’s more common in PCRedCom because some people find it hard to understand. First, you have to distinguish the difference between memorising terms and actually studying the material. Memorising definitions and facts is how most students do their studying for tests. However, this can’t be all that you do for your studying for tests. You also need to spend time understanding how everything works together as a whole topic area.
I need some advice about how to study for the test in order to get a higher score on it. What should I be doing differently?
The first thing that you need to do is to realise that this is a very important skill area. You need to make sure that you are reviewing the concepts and terms as much as possible. You might not need to look at this every single day, but you should be aiming for at least 6-10 hours per week of study time.
I’m having some trouble with understanding the rules and terms of PCRedCom. I am also having issues with how to apply things in the questions to real life situations. What should I do?
It’s not as hard as you might think. The first thing that you can do is to try a PCRedCom free practice test. It will give you a good idea of what the test will be like, and it will help you understand what level you are at. You could also go over all of your notes from class and work on understanding everything that is being taught in this class.
