Brett Ethridge / Dominate Test Prep

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.
