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

I am a firm believer in preparing mentally for any challenge in life. In this journey, I have embarked on as an adult college student; it makes me feel nervous and uncertain, although, with the right mindset and motivation, I am setting myself up for success. I plan to prepare by studying, planning, observing, and managing my time. I have always been one who plans and sticks to schedules. Doing so helps by keeping me grounded and focused, giving me plenty of time to prepare myself for any academic test adequately. I prefer to give myself ample time to study, never have I been the individual who procrastinates or crams exams. That's just a recipe for disaster. I feel humbled, given the opportunity to write an essay. If I am awarded, it will provide me with financial security to keep on pursuing my goals and dreams as a first-time college student. I thank you for taking the time to read this.
