Seven Tips for Test Taking

 

Spring has sprung here in the U.S., which means more daylight, trees in bloom, soccer games...and testing are just around the corner! We’ve got tips and tricks to help you prepare.

As a family-based company, all of us at Time Timer ® loved being a part of this year’s celebration of inspiration and faith for moms. Before it was a household name, the  original Time Timer ® was founded in an everyday household in suburban Cincinnati, Ohio.

 

Jan Rogers struggled to help her daughter, Loran, keep track of time. She wasn’t old enough to read clocks and often missed the bus. So, mom Jan invented Time Timer, which features a patented red disk that shows elapsed time.
