Effective test preparation includes:

e. completing all assignments

Correct. Assignment types are varied, but their main purpose is to provide opportunities for you to increase your learning beyond the three to five hours you are in the classroom. Ensure that you complete all of your assignments. Many professors will include problems or information from assignments in their tests, especially in science and math courses. If you do not understand the purpose for an assignment, talk with your professor. This can help you to approach the assignment as more than "busy work".
