Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
Another important test preparation strategy for me is writing and coloring my notes. Being able to go back and attach a color to a subject gives me a clue whenever I am testing. If I see a certain topic, it jogs my brain to remember the color I labelled it, therefore bringing the information back to my mind as well. I find that on tests I have a tendency to draw a blank and remembering whole concepts can be a daunting task, to focus on something simple such as a color allows me to tighten the reins and focus on whatever the question asks.
Together these strategies have carried me through high school and will carry me beyond. They give me the confidence to succeed and without them, I would not have been able to reach any significant academic achievement.
