How do you Study for a Freaking English Test?

-_-; Someone needs to tell me this. Someone also needs to tell my mom that JUST BECAUSE I'M NOT STUDYING 24/7 THAT DOESN'T MEAN I'M NOT TRYING. GEEZ.
Like seriously, omg, I have a B, it's the end of the FREAKING WORLD.
Like, I seriously just wanna stop trying. It hit me before. I stop worrying about it, I stop caring so much about it, stop trying to live up to my parent's expectations, and everything would be way easier. A B would be a totally fine grade. It isn't the end of the world.

First of all, wow...
And, um, I don't really know. If you've done the reading and whatnot I don't think there is much to study for an English test other than flipping through the stuff you've read real quick to refresh your memory.
As for the A's vs. B's thing - I'm going to leave that up to you.

I come from a half strict half lenient family.. As a Junior in high school I can tell you that the key to getting good grades is setting a standard.
At the beginning of my year I had absolutely NO motivation to do well in school (thinking I would ride horses the rest of my life and earn money that way). But then my whole world changed when I got a letter from VMI (military college). I got straight A's and B's my 3rd quarter and currently have A's and B's now in my 4th quarter! (Which for the top 10 toughest private schools in the nation... is pretty darn good!).
Set a standard for yourself and dont expect any less, youll be surprised what you can accomplish!!! And dont give into stress, if you start to get stressed out, just pause and breathe deeply, distract yourself momentarially then get back to what you were doing!
Hope this helps! :D -Mercy

Bleh, thanks guys ^^; Sorry, I'm usually fine, my mom kinda just walked in and told me I was being useless just then before when I was drawing on the computer and it just kinda annoyed me -_-;
It's just, english, BLEH. I'm in Honors 9 English, which is the hardest class for me right now. I wasn't even recommended for it (I was recommended for regular English 9 CP), but my mom made me take it anyways. Also, Romeo and Juliet's kinda annoying. They're both kinda idiots.
I'm gonna keep reading the no fear shakespear thing on sparknotes i guess.
As for the standards thing, I have fixed standards that I can't change even if I wanted to e.e; My parents say straight A's and get really upset when I get a B. And when they get upset, they go and make me upset. It's annoying >.>; I personally find nothing wrong with a B in my english class. Cuz seriously, I know only like, one person, who's acing that class.
