2 What is it? DETER is a test strategy that helps maximize the time you have while taking an exam.

4 Steps to follow Every time you take a test, DETER can help! First, know your material! (if you don’t, what’s the point of taking a test?!) Being prepared for an exam is the most important part. So study, study, study!

5 If Your in a Jam… Let DETER help! First go to the questions that you know are the easiest. Do not spend too much time on those and keep moving. Once you’ve answered those look for the questions with the most point value so in case you do run out of time you have accumulated points. And finally… remember it’s just a test the most it can give you is a paper cut (said by Garth himself)
