How to improve test-taking skills tudents are periodically tested to gauge their progress on a variety of subjects. Although testing can be an effective way to determine a student's understanding of a given subject, not every student performs well on tests. Test-taking comes easily for some but not so for others. Nerves or trouble concentrating can foil the best students. However, there are ways for students to improve their test-taking skills.


PREPARATION Most tests are given with prior notice, enabling students to prepare for them well in advance. Sometimes teachers and professors will surprise students with a quiz. These pop quizzes are used to judge how well students are absorbing the information and if they have been paying attention. When in class, continually jot down notes and create an outline of important information. The teacher may provide hints about the upcoming test, including emphasizing specific areas of focus or even revealing the format of the test. Contrary to what some students believe, teachers want their students to succeed. Therefore, your teacher may offer a review session the day before or be open for questions prior to the test if further clarification is needed. Studying with others can shed new light on a subject. Studying difficult subject matter

with peers may help students grasp the materials better than they did in class. Classmates may have some tricks they've developed, including pneumonic devices for putting facts together. THE DAY BEFORE AND THE DAY OF THE TEST Prior to a test, make sure you eat and get enough rest. While it may be tempting to pull an "all-nighter," you will not perform well on the test if you are tired from having studied all night. Review the material and put the main ideas or formulas onto a sheet that can be quickly reviewed. Review it many times and then put it away. Have a good meal, relax and try to get at least eight hours of sleep. On the day of the test, wake up and arrive on time or even a few minutes early for your class. This can help to calm your nerves and enable you to squeeze in some last-second studying. THE TEST ITSELF Make sure you have the supplies needed for the test. This may include pens or pencils, a calculator, a textbook if you are allowed to reference, or any other supplies the teacher allows. Have a watch available so that you can pace yourself during the test. Avoid using a mobile phone during the test, as the teacher may misinterpret that as cheating. Try to remain positive through the test. If you

Helping college students choose the right major feel yourself getting nervous, take a few deep breaths and regroup. In addition to these tips, there are other ways to approach the test. * Do the easiest problems first. If you do not know a question, skip it and move on. There may be clues later on in the test that help you go back and answer skipped questions. * Always read the entire question. Skimming could find you missing important instructions. * Look for words that may help you determine the answer, such as "all,""never" or "none." They may present clues to the answer. * Pay attention to your work and only your work. Do not be distracted if others finish before you. * If there is time, go back and look over the test. Make sure that all the questions have been answered and check for any careless mistakes. Proofread any essays and short answer questions. Preparing well for a test, remaining calm and checking over your work can help students who struggle with test-taking do their best.

College Survival Guide

* Encourage patience. Today's college students and college-bound youngsters are living in a world that's significantly different than the one their parents or even older siblings might have encountered. Global and domestic unemployment rates remain high, and technology is changing the way many industries conduct business. But students trying to pick a major should avoid picking one too quickly. Just because a certain field is experiencing job growth does not mean that field is ideal for all students. Encourage kids to be patient when choosing a major so they can find the field that's right for them, and not just the major they feel will produce the best job prospects.

lege major. Internships are rarely easy to get, but some firms hire interns who are still in high school. Parents should encourage kids to pursue internships as early as possible. Internships can provide young students with some real-world experience and give them an accurate glimpse into what their professional lives might be like if they choose a particular field of study. Some kids might be encouraged by an internship, while others might realize a given field is not really for them. Either way, the internship can help narrow down the field of prospective majors for young students.

Today's college students may lean on their parents for advice as they attempt to choose a college major that will help them improve their job prospects after college.

icking a college major is a big step for young students. Though many adults eventually find themselves working in fields that have little to do with their college majors, many more spend their entire careers in the same field they chose to major in way back in their college days.


Choosing a major is a decision that ultimately rests on the shoulders of the students who must consider a host of factors before committing to a specific field of study. But parents can still help their children, whether those kids are already enrolled in college or college-bound, as they make such an important decision that could very well affect the rest of their lives.

* Suggest a double major. Many of today's students are fully aware of the difficult job market and the cost of a college education. As a result, such students want to choose a major they feel will put them in the best position to land a well-paying job after college. That's a smart strategy, but it's also one that overlooks the joy of studying a subject you are passionate about. Parents can simultaneously encourage kids to be smart about their job prospects and pursue their passions by suggesting a double major. For example, if your child has a love of art but understands the difficulty in earning a living as an artist, suggest a double major in art and graphic design. This way he or she has more career options upon graduation but still has the chance to pursue a subject he or she is passionate about while in school. * Encourage students to apply for internships. An internship is another great way parents can help kids as they decide on a col-

* Let kids know a major isn't the same thing as a career. The pressure to choose the right major can be overwhelming for some young students. But parents should let kids know that a major is not the same thing as a career, and many graduates end up working in fields that had little or nothing to do with their majors. For instance, just because a student earns a degree in finance does not mean he or she will end up working on Wall Street. While parents should emphasize the importance of choosing the right major when speaking to their children, they should also let kids know that nothing is ever set in stone. That can help take some of the pressure off students as they make such an important decision. Today's college students have more to consider when choosing a college major than many of their predecessors. But parents can still take steps to help kids choose the right major without succumbing to the stress that comes with making such a significant decision.

• Milledgeville, known as Georgia’s Antebellum Capital, succeeded Louisville as state capital from 1803 to 1868. Carefully planned from its inception, the city was envisioned as an appealing combination of broad streets running parallel with the four points of a compass and public squares of 20 acres each. Today, in fact, Milledgeville is considered the only surviving example of a complete Federal period city.

squares. It is now occupied by Georgia College. Georgia seceded from the Union in January 1861 during a legislative session in Milledgeville. In November 1864, Union Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman invaded the city and burned the penitentiary. He and his troops remained here for a short time and occupied much of the city. Following the war, the capital was moved to Atlanta.

• The Georgia Land Act of 1803 outlined a new lands system and created Baldwin, Wilkinson and Wayne counties. It also provided for the location and survey of a town that was to be called Milledgeville, named in honor of Georgia’s then-Governor, John Milledge (1802-1806). The Georgia state legislature declared Milledgeville as the seat of government in December 1804.

• Milledgeville has the distinction of being the only city in the world to require a train to stop at a red light — which resulted in the city being included in the Guinness Book of World Records. Congressman Carl Vinson, better known as Father of the Two Ocean Navy, lived, died and is buried in Milledgeville. Other famous residents include writer Flannery O’Connor, who penned works at her Andalusia Farm, Vaudeville and motion picture actor Oliver Hardy, former NFL star Earnest Byner, and NFL stars Leroy Hill and Nick Harper, among others. • Milledgeville is the home of Georgia Military College (established in 1879 in the Old State Capitol Building as Middle Georgia Military and Agricultural College), Georgia College and State University, the state’s liberal arts college, (established in 1889 as Georgia Normal and Industrial College) and a satellite campus of Central Georgia Technical College. The world’s largest kitchen, capable of preparing approximately 30,000 meals per day, is located at Central State Hospital in Milledgeville.

• Milledgeville was the capital of Georgia until April 20, 1868. Milledgeville and Washington, D.C., are the only two cities in the country designed and laid out to be the seats of government. Construction of the Capitol started in 1804 and continued for 20 years. The building was considered one of the finest examples of Gothic style architecture in the country. It burned in 1941, but a replica was erected and is now part of Georgia Military College Campus. • The Old Governor’s Mansion, now a popular tourist attraction, was constructed in 1838 and housed governors through 1868. • The state’s penitentiary site was selected in 1808 and was constructed on one of the city’s four original public

•Revered for its storied columns and Greek revival architecture, Milledgeville is known for its Antebellum history, its rich cultural contributions and historic tourist attractions.

Baldwin County began


Baldwin County is Georgia’s 27th county and was created in 1803 by the Lottery Act. It was named for Abraham Baldwin, a Georgia senator who also lent his name to a state college in Tifton. Baldwin County, Alabama is also named in his honor. The second son of a blacksmith, Baldwin was born in Connecticut. He attended private schools and graduated from Yale in 1772, according to his U.S. Congressional biography. He studied theology and was licensed to preach. He also served in the Second Connecticut Brigade, Revolutionary Army from 1777 to 1783. While in the Army, he studied law, and was admitted to the bar in 1783. He moved to Augusta in 1784, where he continued to practice law and served in the Georgia House of Representatives. He was a member of the Continental Congress, and was elected to the United States Senate in 1799. He was also author of the charter that established the nation’s first state university, the University of Georgia. The campus was modeled after Yale, Baldwin’s alma mater. He served as president of the university from 1785 to 1801. Baldwin died in Washington, D.C. and is buried in Rock Creek Cemetery in Washington, D.C.

Georgia Military College was established in 1879 by act of the Georgia General Assembly "to educate young men and women from the Middle Georgia area in an environment which fosters the qualities of good citizenship." The school was originally called Middle Georgia Military and Agricultural College and was ceded state government lands surrounding the Old Capitol Building, which was the seat of government for the State of Georgia from 1807-1868. The Old Capitol Building, then as now, is central feature of the Milledgeville campus and sits on the city’s highest point. The name of the school was changed to Georgia Military College in 1900. Legislative acts of 1920 and 1922 severed the relationship with the University of Georgia and gave a local Board total power over the operations of the school. In 1930 the official addition of a junior college division to the College-preparatory secondary school finally justified its name. In 1950 the War Department designated the institution a "Military Junior College." Today Georgia Military College is one of only five United States Military Junior Colleges. The Georgia Military College of today is made up of a two-year liberal arts multi-campus junior college and a preparatory school (grades six through 12). The college is a co-educational public institution operating under the direction of a publicly elected Board of Trustees. Source: Georgia Military College

History of CGTC Central Georgia Technical College began as Macon-Area Vocational Technical School were accepted in 1966. By 1973, student growth, industrial growth, and community demand led to the need for a new and larger campus. This new facility, located at 3300 Macon Tech Drive, was completed and occupied in 1978. In 1987 the name was changed to Macon Technical Institute (MTI). Throughout the years, MTI has expanded to reflect the changing needs of the community. In July 1990 the institution expanded its outreach when it assumed governance of the Baldwin County Adult Center in Milledgeville. In 1991 the Aircraft Structural Technology program, located at 1062 Forsyth Street, moved to the main campus. In December 1992 the State Board approved the granting of Associate of Applied Technology (AAT) degrees. The first program to admit students at this degree level was Medical Laboratory Technology in October 1993. In November 1993, MTI held the groundbreaking ceremony for a new facility on the south side of the Macon Campus off Raymonde Kelley Drive. Construction on the new facility began in early 1994 and was completed in January 1996. The facility currently houses health programs, a student lecture hall, and a 250-seat auditorium. Also included in this construction phase was an

aircraft hangar that provided the laboratory space for expanded aerospace training. Seventy acres of land was transferred from another state agency to the Department of Technical and Adult Education to build a satellite campus in Milledgeville. Construction on the Milledgeville Campus began in 1996, and the campus opened in fall 1997. On July 6, 2000, as part of the Education Reform Act, Macon Technical Institute changed its name to Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) to more accurately reflect the sevencounty area that the college serves. These counties include Baldwin, Bibb, Crawford, Jones, Monroe, Putnam, and Twiggs. The College's expansion continued with the Putnam County Center opening in September 2002, and the Crawford County Center opening in 2004. Building I, located on the main campus, also opened in 2004. It houses the School of Arts and Science, Library, Food Court, and Bookstore. July 1, 2009, Dr. Flora Tydings, a former VicePresident of Academic Affairs at the College and the sitting president of Athens Technical College filled a void as interim president during TCSG's search for a permanent president. The current president, Michael D. Moye, Ed. D., took the helm as of February 16, 2010. Source: Central Georgia Technical College

History of Georgia College Georgia College and State University, Georgia's public liberal arts university, was created by an act of the legislature Nov. 8, 1889. Georgia Normal and Industrial College, the institution's original name, was founded to provide a practical higher education for women that would enable them to enter business and industry or teaching. Georgia Normal and Industrial College was given the Old Governor's Mansion as a dormitory and presidential residence as well as a sixteen-acre square filled with rubble from the former Georgia State Penitentiary. In 1891 Old Main, the college's first classroom building, was completed. The first president, J. Harris Chappell, together with Julia Flisch, who was now a faculty member, shaped the philosophy and curriculum of the new college. Chappell wanted an egalitarian institution where, as he put it, "a millionaire's daughter ... could not be distinguished from the poorest girl in the school." The girls all wore the same brown uniforms and, through a set of complex rules and regulations, were isolated as much as possible from local males. The college had something of the air of a convent. Chappell and Flisch also moved beyond the industrial college mission to develop a strong curriculum in the arts and humanities. In 1905 Chappell was succeeded as president by the energetic and charismatic Marvin M. Parks. The Neoclassical appearance of the campus took shape during Parks's twenty-one-year tenure, and Georgia Normal and Industrial College moved beyond its tentative experimental years to become one of the leading normal schools in the Southeast. Parks assembled a faculty that taught such innovative courses as educational psychology, though he had a more traditional view of women's socioeconomic role than did Chappell and Flisch. In 1917 Parks sought to gain a share of federal Smith-Lever funds for home economics extension work, and at the same time he lobbied the state legislature for permission to confer

four-year degrees. Both actions generated opposition from the board of trustees of UGA. The UGA trustees argued, correctly, that the act that established Georgia Normal and Industrial College gave UGA final control and management of the women's college. Parks had no intention of operating Georgia Normal and Industrial College as a mere branch of UGA. Cultivating powerful political allies, Parks wrested administrative control of the college from UGA, and in 1922 the twoyear teachers' college became a four-year degree-granting institution with a new name—Georgia State College for Women (GSCW). In 1926 Parks was struck and killed by a car in Tampa, Florida, but the college continued to flourish under a caretaker successor, a chemistry professor named J. Luther Beeson (1927-34). On January 1, 1932, GSCW became part of the University System of Georgia, and two years later Guy H. Wells, a stout, nervously energetic, rather rustic native of Carroll County, assumed the presidency. Whatever his cultural deficiencies, Wells was a gifted administrator, and despite depression-era shoestring budgets, the college flourished under his guidance, with enrollment peaking at 1,500 in 1938. Wells encouraged student participation in governance decisions and, together with Dean Ethel Adams, created enduring traditions at GSCW. The most cherished of these was the Golden Slipper, a competition between classes to produce the best skits and dances, which soon came to symbolize the sisterhood of the Jessies (the name for GSCW students). The campus was transformed during World War II (1941-45) when, through the efforts of Congressman Carl Vinson, a Milledgeville resident, the college became a training center for the Navy WAVES. From 1943 to 1945, 15,000 WAVES passed through GSCW. The regular students felt a bit crowded, and their occasional resentment was expressed in cartoons drawn for the college newspaper and yearbook by Flannery O'Connor. O'Connor, who graduated from GSCW

in 1945, went on to become a major American writer and remains the college's most distinguished graduate. Enrollment declined precipitously in the postwar years, reaching a low of 585 students in 1953. Many young women considered the very concept of a woman's college confining and rather old-fashioned. The decline was stabilized by two young presidents, Henry King Stanford (195356) and Robert E. Lee (1956-67). Lee came to embrace the embattled cause of female education, a crusade resulting in 1961 in the college's third name change, to the Woman's College of Georgia. Still, many of the college facilities were underused, and Lee, under pressure from the Board of Regents, began preparing the college for coeducation. The first males were admitted in 1967, the institution was renamed Georgia College, and enrollment grew over time from 1,107 in 1966 to 4,500 in 1989. The tightly knit community of students began to dissolve. Georgia College had become a senior comprehensive college serving the needs of central Georgia, and three-fourths of the students were commuters. In 1977, under the leadership of J. Whitney Bunting (1967-81), the college was divided into schools: arts and sciences, education, and business; the School of Nursing was added in 1987. Enrollment in the School of Business mushroomed during the Bunting years, and the college established off-campus centers at Robins Air Force Base and in Macon, Dublin, and Forsyth. During the presidency of Bunting's successor, Edwin G. Speir (1981-96), Georgia College began positioning itself for regional university status. Then, in 1995, the college's mission changed abruptly. The new chancellor of the university system, Stephen R. Portch, impressed with the college's high admission standards and its handsome red-brick buildings and white Corinthian columns, suggested that the college might become the public liberal arts college of Georgia, a state institution that would provide the kind of educational experience normally available

only at private colleges. Speir readily embraced the new mission in 1996. In that year of dramatic change Georgia College, which had served as a regional college for thirty years, now began recruiting students from all over the state—by 2003, 75 percent of students came from outside central Georgia—and began recovering its liberal arts heritage. In addition, because of a new statewide Board of Regents policy, the college adopted its sixth name, Georgia College and State University. This radical shift in direction was presided over first by Speir and his successor, acting president Ralph W. Hemphill (1997) and then by the institution's first female president, Rosemary DePaolo. Beginning with her arrival in August 1997, DePaolo, whose energy and drive was comparable to that of Parks, worked to effect an intellectual and demographic transformation at Georgia College and State University. By 2002 she presided over a university with approximately 5,500 students, 700 faculty and staff, and a budget of $60 million. From 2001 to 2003, 68 new faculty members were hired, the library building was tripled in size, eight new residence halls were under construction, and the university was accepted into membership in the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges. The graduate program, which numbers more than 1,050 students, includes a master's degree in music therapy and a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing. DePaolo resigned in 2003, and interim president David G. Brown took over July 1, 2003. President Dorothy Leland began her position Jan. 1, 2004 and remained at Georgia College until June 30, 2011. Following the announcement of Dr. Leland’s departure to take on a new role at an institution in California, the Georgia Board of Regents appointed Stas Preczewski named interim president at Georgia College.
