When taking a course with a new professor try to gage how he will do his testing. Does he focus on classroom discussion, reading, obscure references? What will you have to know on test day? For the first test be prepared for anything. Study hard and know the material inside and out.
Another help in gauging how your professors test is to ask around and find some folks who have had him/her in previous semesters and ask them. Also, ask the prof. When I used to teach college, I gave a comprehensive study guide. If students completed it and studied from it, they were prepared for the test, as the study guide was what I had in front of me as I prepared the test.
Another hint....in writing, if in doubt, use the spell check. Gauge. In college, a lot of profs will take off for misspellings.
