Just as comprehension strategies have helped millions of students learn to read like proficient readers, they can also help students think like effective test takers. The authors show how students can use questioning, mental images, inferring, synthesizing, background knowledge, determining importance, and monitoring to understand the genre of tests and to think through the problems they are given. Instead of spending time on artificial and disconnected activities to cram for upcoming tests, students learn skills and strategies that will serve them throughout their school careers and beyond.
