Once you complete your time in CDL school, you must pass your test before you can start working in the field. Use the following tips to study for your exam so you can easily pass it the first time:

Pay Attention in Class

One of the most important elements of studying is paying attention while in class. In order to have good study material that you can reference, good note-taking skills are a must. Make an effort to pay attention in all of your classes and to ask questions when you are unsure about a certain concept.

Write While You Study

Another effective way to retain information is to make notes as you study. Instead of just reading over the material, you can rewrite it all to give yourself a better chance of retaining the information when you sit down to take your test. You should actually sit down with a paper and pen and write out the information instead of typing it up on your computer or laptop.

Work with Classmates

You can also try to work with some of your classmates to discuss the information you learned in class. Hearing someone else’s point of view on a certain topic might help you remember it. It is also useful to explain concepts that your peers do not understand. As you sit down and talk to them about the ideas, it helps you remember them even more.

Take Breaks

Taking breaks can actually help you retain information. You should get up and walk around at least once every few hours to give your brain the rest it needs to get back to studying.
