Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.

The best test preparation practices I use involve color and sound based memory and repetitive writing tasks. Color and sound based memory involves choosing a color and a song and using both to trigger a certain memory. I use this type of memorization skill because I noticed music and color had a profound effect on my ability to both learn and study. The color green and Jazz helped with Science. Red and Rock helped me with History. Blue and Pop music helped with Math.
I use repetitive writing tasks to help certain notes stand out and easily be memorized. Using blue pen, as that color has been known to increase memorization, I would write certain sentences or pages over and over again so that the memory can easily be pulled from my brain onto a test or paper. Therefore, to increase memory I use color and sound based memory and repetitive writing tasks to study and prepare for tests.
