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

My test preparation strategy does not involve a lot. It is very simple and easy to do. As I do my homework I surround myself with friends in that class that I know have a better grasp on the subject than me so that if I have questions or need help they can help me through the process so I learn. I do this because the only way a person can become better at a task is to follow instep with someone who is better than him or her. I do this throughout all the homework assignments so by the time the review comes I am able to do it on my own. Yes, I still trip up and have moments of confusion but because of the steps I took beforehand therefore I am able to succeed on the test to come.
This works for me because it gives me instant feedback on how I am doing and I can ask questions as needed so that I do not get frustrated and quiet because I do not understand. I will not have to wait until the next day in class to see how did on the assignment. Also I can see how the problem is worked out and follow their steps on figuring out the problem.
