Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
Another one of my test preparation practices is to rewrite all of my notes to further engrave the information into my memory. By handwriting these notes as opposed to typing them on a computer, I am requiring myself to think more intently about what I am trying to learn and remember. This way, I can also correct the wording of my previous notes and ponder their meaning to get a fuller and more in-depth understanding of them.
Lastly, I prepare for my upcoming tests by compiling all of the information that I need to study into a Word file. I usually do this by pulling from study resources offered by my professor or in the textbook and making a list of the key terms and concepts that I need to have secured in my memory for the test. For instance, I will take any study guide material that my professor has provided to me and a vocabulary section at the end of my textbook chapter and then combine those into a rough file. I structure this rough file with many blank spaces so that I can print out the document and return to my own handwriting to fill in the correct answers. Once I complete this document and write in all the answers, I keep it with me to flip through, study, and review.
