Make Test Picnic Instead of Panic .AND RETAIN liir MORE By The Reading Laboratory Excerpted from the World Publishing Company book, "Study Faster and Retain More," Illustrations By Roy Doty. Don't get nervous because a test is coming. Actually, it's very unproductive. You don't score any extra points for a wildly palpitating heart. As a matter of fact, the more anxious you get, the more chance there is of 'freezing" on the test. So let's assume you're calm, cool, collected and have been doing what these chapters have been telling you to do. Start to review your notebook. You've been keeping a general outline of the course in yeur notebook, so the best thing to do is to read that over. As you come to each major point, slop and think about it. Consider its possible ramifications — everything that it means, everything .that it leads to. Try to infer what the next major point should be. Use your textbook to check anything that's not completely clear from your notes. Or if you like, make a general overview of the chapters that pertain, just to confirm the accuracy of your notes. You won't have every little detail in your notes, but you'll have notes on where they can be found. At first, don't bother with any thing that may require memorization. Begin your reviewing at least a week before the test is scheduled so you can study somewhat leisurely and with a minimum of pressure. Save the memorization until the night before, or at most, two nights before the test. As a rule, memorization doesn't stick for a long time. Review for the test the same way you've been studying. Get the main idea first; learn the general overview before you start to get involved in details. You can afford to miss a detail or two, because if you really understand the main idea of the course, you'll be able to figure out the details — or at least you'll be able to make good guesses. For most people, a brain-picking session with four or five .—by Abigail Van Boren G/W, 73, Not A Facts Bureau DEAK ABBY: I am 13 and people tell me I am very mature for my age. Abby, I know more about the facts of life and the course of nature than most kids, and I got it straight from my mother. She told me everything starting from the age of 8. I don't know how I got the reputation, but girls from 10 to 16 come to me for inform- tion about the pill and that sort. Even boys come to me with questions. Should I answer their questions, or tell them to ask their mothers or what? "LITTLE ABBY" DEAR "LITTLE ABBY": I don't know how yon got the reputation of knowing so much, but it's not because you've kept it a secret. If a girl (between 10 and 16) • asks a 13-year-old for inior- mation about "the pill and that sort," perhaps her mother should know she is ; seeking such information, so the best thing for you to do is to tell her to ask her mother. Your own mother appears to have pretty good sense, so ask her how much she thinks you should be tell ing the other kids. DEAR ABBY: We are a family of five, plus one. The new addition is a basset hound. We got him when he was 3 weeks old. He was real cute then and everbody ]oved him. Today he is 8 months old and a regular pain-in-the-neck When he eats, he slops all over. And when he drinks water, his ears get sopping wet. He drools and climbs'up on the furniture and slobbers all over everybody and everything. And he's still not housebroken. My husband can't stand him He says he makes him sick. I put up with the dog because the children love him My husband wants to get rid of him, but it would break the children's hearts. The hound's name is "Snoopy," but we should have named him "Smelly." But that's another problem. What should we do? DOG TIRED DEAR DOG TIRED: It's not the poor dog's fault that he wasn't properly trained to be a lovable, obedient, at tractive pet. Dogi (not un- like children) can't be expected to know what they haven't been taught. It may be too late to train "Snoopy," but give it a try. Otherwise, lam with dad. DEAR ABBY: This is for Cindy, whose husband asks her out with only an hour's notice: God bless him for asking you and not one of the girls from the office. Let me tell you from experience, it's smart always to be ready. Have a long list of sitters, you can call at the last minute. And some good "friends" in reserve in c^se you can't get a sitter. Do something with your hair during the daytime just in case that's the night your husband wants to take you out. And always have something ready to wear. Me? I take no chances. All I need is 5 minutes notice and I can get ready for an audience with the pope. PREPARED CONFIDENTIAL TO Hurt Wife: Tell your loving husband that a married man bas no business wearing an I. D. bracelet given to him by an old flame, and if it doesn't "mean anything" he shouldn't mind putting it away. And until he does he shouldn't expect you to function properly as a loving wife.

Panic is contagious. Finally, the morning of the test, a quick general overview of the notes is in order. It will refresh your memory and put others is a good idea — with | you in good shape. As a general rule, your aim in preparation is this: get yourself to the point where you can give, off the top of your head, about a 15-minute summary of all the material covered. If you can do that you can afford to relax; you can be sure you won't have any trouble.
