Brett Ethridge / Dominate Test Prep
Learn the three components of effective test preparation, how they work together for content mastery, and how this "Success Triad" is the key to proper time management on test day.
Show Notes

What does it take to truly master the content tested on your standardized test and get a high score on test day? It really comes down to three core components -- what we call the "Success Triad" -- which we lay out for you in this episode, the first of a two-part series looking at test prep mastery.

Specifically, you will learn:

  • The three components of the Success Triad and how they work together synergistically to produce mastery for whichever standardized test you're taking;
  • How the Pareto Principle of economics factors in to how you should think about learning the content tested on your exam;
  • The crucial WIBNI mindset for simplifying difficult questions, with an illustrative application example;
  • The concept of "perfect practice" with tips on how to make sure you're getting the most out of your study sessions;
  • How the Success Triad factors in to effective time management;
  • And more!

The framework outlined in this episode will help anyone looking to boost his/her test score and to focus on the right things while preparing. It will also give you a solid foundation that we'll build on next week in Part 2 of this series where we're going to dive deeper and help you develop a more customized study plan.

So be sure to Subscribe to The Dominate Test Prep Podcast so that you're alerted when Part 2 drops next week. You won't want to miss it!
