MEAP is upon us. Please make sure to get a good night’s sleep and eat a healthy breakfast. It may not seem to matter, but studies have shown that students who get a good night’s sleep and eat well, perform better on standardized tests than those who have little sleep and are hungry. Also, remember to read questions carefully as well as all the answers before selecting the best answer. Double check all your answers to make sure you didn’t leave any blank and make sure all your bubbles are completely filled in.
