Last Full Week

This is the last full week of school before the Regents exams. Please take this time to check out some of the links on the right to help you in your review as you study to pass your exams.

Some important tips to doing well:

Do not leave any questions blank. Fill in every section to get some partial credit.
Show all your work. Extra work does not hurt.
Answer all the multiple choice questions.
Eliminate some choices before you make a guess.
If you cant solve the problem then use the answers and work backwards.
Learn to use your graphing calculator well.
Memorize the formulas that are not given on the formula sheet.

Good luck
