Just do read -> example exercise

- understand the example exercise?

yes -->  try a few normal exercises (one of the first, that's short and easy. Another of the last that's often a little harder)

no --> watch a Khan Academy video on it, then do the exercises

Anyway, don't panick. 3 days is a really long time. Just make sure you really use it and don't procrastinate. Don't go on all night, I have experience with doing that. During the night you can often still going, but you won't last the second day without sleep. You lose concentration and just don't remember things.

Put your phone somewhere far away so you can't get to it. Divide it into multiple parts (if that wasn't done already) and take a break everytime you've had a chapter and 1,5 hours or so have passed. Get something to drink or take a little walk and continue.

Once you've made it through all chapters, hopefully you have one of those test-tests or whatever they're called in english. Pretty much an example test that has been made available that's representative for an actual one. Do that if you have the time. Then check the answers and see what things you should learn better for.

Hi, I have some relevant knowledge regarding standardized testing. Much of the research shows that there is an extremely large effect size between the events leading up to the test and the results of said test. The biggest advice would be to study up until the evening before, do something that will get you pretty tired (moderate workout or jog, don't exhaust yourself!), go to bed early so you can wake up early. On the day of the test, eat the best breakfast you can. Something filling and safe for your stomach. Leave ample time to commute to the testing site and navigating to the test room, at least an extra half hour.

All of these points lead to you feeling calm and ready for the test. Your brain will be in a space that is more conducive to problem solving. This will generally allow you to perform better than the "extra preparation time" would allow.

Just sharing often overlooked information concerning these kinds of tests. Good luck, you'll do great.
