Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
Since rejoining college I have found a number of test preparations to be beneficial and lead to my success. First, specifically for math and science, I thoroughly recommend taking advantage of practice exams provided by class administrators or those present online. I have completed no less than three practice exams for every exam I have completed. I have found this act of repetition provides me with adequate practice and therefore leads to optimistic results. This technique requires each practice exam to be graded once completed and, in response, adjustments be made as necessary.
On the day of an exam, I exercise the utmost care in how I prepare myself for that day. To start my day, I make certain I am alert at least six hours before my test. This requires me to plan in advance, the day before, to ensure I receive an adequate amount of sleep. My breakfast consists of a traditional bowl of chicken pho and usually a cup of coffee. Next, I will conduct at least one practice examination to assess any final adjustments. Upon arrival at the testing site, if time permits, I will continue reviewing my practice exams to ensure I eliminate any errors.
I am pleased to say that this current style of test preparation, I am using, has been a success. In the fall term of 2019, I achieved a 4.0 and straight As for the first time in my life.
