buy the red Barron’s regents book and PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!!! check your answers, look up why you got stuff wrong and watch as your scores raiseMay 5, 2010 8:59 pm at 8:59 pm #684306dvorakMember
Math, science history- practice the questions. English is trickier because it asks you to write 4 essays. Although you should certainly look over the test to get an idea of what it’s like, the only way to really prepare for it is by writing essays! Also, read a lot, because one of the essays will ask you to relate 2 books to a statement. The more you read, the easier it will be to think of 2 books that relate.
Also, visit regentsprep.org for more tips and old tests.May 6, 2010 12:46 am at 12:46 am #684307Dr. PepperParticipant
Why don’t we have a thread for each regent where students can post questions they don’t understand and teachers (and former teachers) can post the answers and explanations.
Here’s a tip I taught my trigonometry class to remember sine, cosine and tangent-
Sine = Opposite / Hypotenuse,
Cosine = Adjacent / Hypotenuse,
Tangent = Opposite / Adjacent.
The order of the three is the same on all calculators- sine, cosine and tangent.
To remember the letters O H A H O A, make a sentence- Oh Heaven, Another Hour Of Avi.
I find it amazing that some of them still remember it years later.May 6, 2010 3:47 am at 3:47 am #684308
my teacher taught us a tip to remember this SOHCAHTOA just have the word in your mind.
It helped me for the regent.May 6, 2010 3:49 am at 3:49 am #684309
i’m studying for chemistry regent, and i came across a regents question, whats the difference between a voltaic cell and a electrolytic cell, whats the answer???May 6, 2010 3:38 pm at 3:38 pm #684310
In ELECTROLYTIC CELL,electric current is used to derive a non-spontaneous redox reaction.Down`s cell and nelson cell are electrolytic cell.
In VOLTAIC CELL,electric current is produced as a result of spontaneous redox reaction.Daniel cell and fuel cell r galvanic or voltaic cell.May 6, 2010 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #684311kapustaParticipant
Doing old regents is really the best way. You learn to take a regent and get used to the sort of questions that are on it, and know the teachers test. Many teachers use old regents as a guide when making up tests. It will also teach you the course once you get the hang of the questions. You can time yourself, and improve your goal so when you’re actually at the regent, you dont feel as pressured.
For english, you can use anything, not just major works. Megillas Esther is ok too. (supposedly)

You’re teaching 11th grade SohCahToa? We did sines and cosines in relation to the unit circle this year-SohCahToa we did in the integrated algebra course.May 7, 2010 12:33 am at 12:33 am #684313dvorakMember
Kapusta- not sure if you’re responding to me, but I said nothing about major works. I’ve seen kids using Harry Potter, the Twilight series, and trashy thrillers (I work in a public school). Lehavdil, frum kids could certainly use BY Times, or those Feldheim novels. I haven’t heard the Megillas Esther one, but if that’s true, ok. But the fact is, you need write about TWO books and they have to relate to the quote (or, rather, your interpretation of the quote). Your best chance of coming up with 2 relevant books is to read lots of books!May 7, 2010 2:31 am at 2:31 am #684314
jewish girl, thanks.May 7, 2010 3:02 am at 3:02 am #684315

Can u explain me
the answerMay 10, 2010 3:59 pm at 3:59 pm #684319
Cr is a transition element.
Colored aqueous solutions are a characteristic of transition compounds. The only transition compound is CrCl3.
it sounds very complicated but once you learn it its not tht hard
any more questions?May 11, 2010 12:35 am at 12:35 am #684320
how do i know whats a transition compoundMay 12, 2010 2:23 pm at 2:23 pm #684321
transition is a transformation of a mater. for example in politics transition is change from one government to the next.
changing from one compound to a different compound
i think this is the answer im not 100% positive
