Clerk Test - Score to Your Full Potential
When you're getting ready to take your Clerk test, how are you going to prepare?
Are you just really going to hit the books, studying for weeks ahead of time to try and make sure that you understand all of the material that you're going to be seeing on the Clerk exam, or will you wait until the week before the test and try to cram all of the information in? Either way, you might be surprised to learn that either way is not going to make that big of a difference one way or the other if you're just learning the basic facts and not bothering to learn to solve complex problems with what you know. Your examination is not really going to be interested in your ability to spout off the fundamentals of the material, but instead will expect you to be able to take your knowledge and apply it to complex questions, finding the correct answer quickly. If you can't do this, the test is going to be hard on you. The only way you can learn these skills is by practicing them, and that involves using all of the right materials to study for the test.
If you go into the exam without these skills, you can be sure that you're going to run into some problems. If this is the main thing that the examination is looking for and you just don't have it, you won't have any way to find the correct answers, or at least not to find the answer in a timely manner. Studies have shown that failure to prepare is one of the most common causes of testers being disappointed with their scores, and there's every reason to believe that lower than expected scores plague all of those who fail to prepare.
The result of not preparing well will be the same for every person every time - a score that is lower than what they could have made had they invested their time with the proper study materials. Regardless of your own amount of natural ability, no one is perfect on their first couple of tries at anything. It takes time and hard work to get to the peak of your learning curve, to be at your best.
