I'm kind of worried I'm going to fail my state math test - May 15th 2012, 02:12 AM

The standardized math test for my state has a reputation of being ridiculously easy, and they changed it. We did a couple sample questions in class and they were super hard and I didn't know how to do them. My teachers said they hoped those were the hard questions and the whole test isn't like that. I'm kind of screwed if the test is that hard.

I have a C in math now, and I had a D, and two B-'s the other quarters. On all the review packets for the exam I get like F's to C's. They're really high F's though. It's curved so I get C's instead of an F even if the percentage is for an F. Usually I get like fifteen to thirty percents on quizzes. They're hard.

You can take the exam until you pass and you get unlimited time, but I'm worried about failing. The prospects are bleak. The test is next week. What should I do?

Just study, keep doing practice questions and give yourself a break.
You are probably just nervous, so calm down and relax for a little before and after you start studying so you don't get too stressed.
I'm sure your going to do great
Good luck

Be proud of your place in the cosmos. It is small, and yet...

If the practice problems are giving you a hard time, then I would ask your professor to design slightly easier versions of those problems. If those are still giving you a hard time, it may be due to not having an adequate understanding of the basics. You would have to go back and master those before you could have any hope of completing a more difficult math test. Unfortunately, math is one of those subjects where you really do have to retain everything you learn, because each step builds off of the previous one. The fact that you consistently score poorly on exams could be an indication that those first steps haven't been firmly established in your mind.
