I'm an okay test take to be perfectly honest. I get average grades on my test. I personally like multiple choice tests because you can choose through different options of answers instead of writing it down. xD

If I know its going to be hard I tend to study for about an hour and I end up doing pretty good, but if its a test that turned out to be harder than I thought then I'll probably fail it or get like a C.
As long as I know what the test is mainly about I'm good to go.
Yes, I'm kinda awesome at tests when I can be bothered to care about them. All throughout my academic life, I've done the absolute minimum to get the maximum results, and that most of my education has been test-based, as opposed to coursework or participation in class, has only spotlighted these abilities to the forefront. Throughout school, a 'good' marks was 80/90%+, and I put enough effort in to achieve those marks for the most part. When university came around, the standard dropped to 60-70%, and my work dropped to about that level. In law school, it dropped even further - to about 50% to pass - and in most of my exams I got about 55%! If I ever need to take exams again, I imagine I'll be able to get to the requisite standard to do well, but I kinda hope I don't need to. I like actually working instead, and have no intention to go back into further education.
Depends on what's on the test; if it's essay writing then I cruise on past; if it's trick-multiple-question I can have a tough time. If it's math or history, I'm terrible (though I can do homework and take-home assignments just fine.) *Shrug*
I'm terrible at taking tests unless it's one that's entirely written and made up of short answers or essays. With anything else, I either blank out, or I pick the wrong answer under the impression that it's right because I think "Well, it could be right because..." I have a problem taking multiple choice tests because I always feel like they're trick questions. I kick ass with essays, though.
But I haven't had a test since, like, October so things might have changed since then.
