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

In the course of my four years in high school, I have tried countless techniques to find the best way for me to study for tests. After trial and error, I found my favorite method to study for almost any course, which is using a flashcard system. I love flashcards because it is easy to study with my peers, but can also be adapted to studying on my own. This is one of the main reasons why I have found this method to be so beneficial for me. There is no excuse to skip studying for a test if I can't find a study buddy. I can use flashcards for vocabulary words in my science classes, important dates and historical figures in social studies, must-know formulas for math, and even full sentences for my German tests. Flash cards are versatile in use and are also extremely portable. I am so glad I found a study routine for tests that works for me that I can carry into college in the fall.
