Posted May 3, 2016 8:35 p.m. EDT

Heather Forgione, owner of Forgione Tutoring, is back with another test prep tip.

While reading is an important way for kids to hone their test-taking skills and boost their knowledge, they don't necessarily need to be reading 400-page novels all of the time, she says.

In this quick video, Forgione shares why it's important for kids to head to the newsstand to pick out challenging magazines to prepare them for the tests and also build their knowledge on topics that interest them.

Watch the video for more. And, check out other tips from Forgione in the More on This section. She'll be back next week with a final tip.
