According to a survey released Thursday from the National Survey of Student Engagement, many students fail to use effective study techniques to help them succeed in school. The New York Times reported, "The great majority of students take notes in class, but fewer than two-thirds review them later, and even fewer take notes while reading."
Whatever your philosophy on test taking, they haven’t been abolished
yet. So get prepared! Don’t just madly cram for a test the night before.
You can do better than that. Get organized!
While you’re in class taking notes, use a special tag to mark the material you know (or think) you’ll be tested on. Then focus your exam prep time on those notes. OneNote gives you an easy way to do that; it’s called a tag.
I recommend creating a custom tag in OneNote called “Exam material”.

Last month I attended the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) 2011 conference in Philadelphia. For three days I worked the booth and walked the halls listening to the questions that teachers and school IT professionals were asking.

Earlier in the year I worked with Beth Melton, an Excel MVP, to create a super easy and visual gradebook template in Excel 2010. It’s built for teachers with little to no Microsoft Excel experience. In fact, all of the grade calculation formulas are taken care of for you. We built the template in Excel 2010, because of all the new 2010 data visualization features. It even includes a printable student progress report!
Take a look at what this new gradebook template has to offer.
