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

I have maintained a 4.0 cumulative GPA throughout all of high school. To prepare for tests, I take advantage of the notes the teacher provides by copying them down in a notebook. I highlight the most important information and read through textbooks to take my own personal notes. I also use Quizlet to study for exams. I complete any homework assignment I am given and I also look up videos or worksheets online over a similar concept for more practice at home. When it comes time to take the test, I cross out the answers I know for a fact are incorrect. If I don't know the answer to a question I limit the answer choices down to two and take an educated guess. I use a planner daily and I make sure I know approximately how much time I need to study for the exam. I set aside hours each night to prepare myself for the next day of school.
