How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Wow, I haven't really thought about this before! How do you normally study for tests and quizzes? Or how are you studying for the TSI? I'd imagine you'd want to try to replicate whatever you've had success with in the past.
I guess my advice would be to watch videos if possible, especially for things like math. Flashcards also probably make a lot of sense, especially if you can make them more visual than usual. I wouldn't buy pre-made flashcards either. The process of making flashcards can be just as helpful as studying them. Prep books and one-page study guides can also be useful. I did find this CollegeVine article which could be useful: https://blog.collegevine.com/the-best-way-to-study-for-the-sat-based-on-your-learning-type/.
My biggest piece of advice is to learn how to take the SAT effectively. Studying and learning the material is important but you can increase your score just as much (depending what on what your current score is) by learning how to take the test efficiently and accurately. Good luck!
One thing that was super helpful for me was to create an outline of the material to organize my notes in a way that I understood. Much of the test material starts to look the same after hours of studying so things like a concept map, color codes, tabs, etc, can help you visually navigate the test. Things that will help you step outside the classroom, like videos, are also helpful to try.
