Also, never make the mistake of taking any detail as inconsequential or ‘not important’ because from past experiences, it is the details that are considered ‘unimportant’ that JAMB mostly focuses on. A good example being the name of Efua Coker’s former principal (Mrs Obange) or the snack seller’s name (Mama Silifat).
4. Examine Yourself
After recording the details, you examine yourself. Ask yourself questions from the book. Preferably, flip to the last two pages of the book and answer the questions asked there. Then, most importantly, get your copy of JAMB Past Questions In English and answer the questions asked on the book.
This is the last part where, after carrying out the above stated, you sit yourself down, get an exercise book and write down everything you remember and have found out to be relevant, in line with the past questions you have already gone through. Do this chapter by chapter; this way, it is much more understandable when going through it on the day of your examination.
