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

Test preparation practice is an skill I'm woking on exceling at. I belive that getting excellent test scores is vital and an important skill to have. The first thing you must have when preparing for a test is self motivation meaning putting in your best effort and achieving for you and not because someone of someone else. You have to aspire to achieve because it's something that you value and interest you. If one is does not have the ambition and drive to put the effort in to prep for a test then the results will show. Self motivation is a fundamental skill that will help anyone achieve what ever they may want to achieve and that goes beyond test preparation.
Putting in the time to achieve is by far a important role when it comes to test preparation. You have to make sure you find the time to study and grasp the concept that you need to understand in order to pass the test. If no time is given then it will show in your results you earned. Even the smallest amount of time helps, excessive amounts of study time is not a requirement just as long as your devoting time and practice to the test.
Asking for help plays a big part when it comes to excelling on a test. You have to be okay with not undetsanding and asking for help or doing things that are going to help you. You have to accept that you can't do everything on your own and getting help and guidance will benefit you. Without help you may have a hard time with specific things which may set you back. Don't be afraid to ask someone you trust for help because I guarantee they will not mind.
Lastly you have to understand that you are human and its normal to make mistakes and not be perfect. Don't let wanting to be perfect take away from why you are taking test and be the reason you ultimately do poor on a test. Make sure that you try your hardest with out forgetting the reason why you want to achieve the test you are taking the test.
