Do you dread exams? Don’t worry, a lot of us do. But instead of you becoming anxious about it, you can look at it in a more positive way. Exams are measurements of our understanding. Teachers and professionals continually provide these to assess our knowledge and skills. Therefore, the real key here is understanding yourself and create a study plan. This is how you do it.

oDesk Review and Tips

By on May 28, 2011 in Internet Marketing, Online Jobs | 14 comments

In August, I will be two years in Odesk.  I joined the site while I was in the Philippines and it has been an on and off work for me by choice. I have accumulated 673 hours so far not including those non-hourly jobs I have accepted. I withdraw my oDesk payments weekly to be sent to my bank account or PayPal account. Here is the link to my profile so you can assess my work experience from oDesk yourself. Even my husband who is an SEO, more experienced than me, take consultancy jobs in oDesk. While my friend Joy has worked 876 hours since April of 2010. The way oDesk works is that employers will post jobs which can be paid hourly or fixed rate. Then contractors like us will apply to these jobs. oDesk will then get a little percentage for whatever is paid to you. Hourly jobs are tracked through a software and is more guaranteed, while fixed rate jobs don’t require a tracker but is...

Level 24 in Farm Town After 1 Week Playing

After being bored with Mahjong Titans, I decided to try another App in Facebook, the Farm Town. I got interested with Farm Town after seeing a photo of my friend’s farm. I was amazed how a barren land could turned out pretty after few times playing the game. Making a farm online like that was like building my own dream farm. Despite the low coins when I started the game, I was not discouraged to try the App. Besides games like this really start with almost nothing. I just have to start playing it and I will surely advance. On my first day, I planted a few grapes, added another App to get free coins, and added my Facebook friends, who are already playing, as my neighbors. I was fortunate I had a lot of friends playing because I could visit their farms and earn coins by working on their farms like weeding. Once I had good amount of coins, I started planting more grapes. But it was...

After reviewing for the Licensure Exam for Teachers and passing it, I decided to share my ten LET passing tips here on my blog. These tips are essentially helpful if you decide not to enroll in a review center and just review on your own to get a license for teaching. # 1 Know your weak and strong subjects/classes. Allot a few hours each day or each week to review the lessons for classes you did well when you were still in college. Enjoy this review time so you can easily remember what you are re-learning. Allot more time, however, on classes you were weak in. Well, at least if you are weak in mathematics for example, make sure you don’t miss reviewing the concepts that will be tested in the General Math part of the licensure exam. It will be easy to find out your areas of weakness. Check the grades in your transcript or assess yourself which among the classes you took you...
