Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
I had taken tests in the past throughout high school to identify which type of learner I am. I’ve always gotten hands on learning as my preferred way of learning, but there isn’t always an open skills lab to practice in. This is when I personally turn to Youtube. Yes, Youtube can be a very odd place and trusting the internet can be scary. But personally, I always look at the youtubers page Katbefore I begin watching a video. For example, to study for a recent EMT exam I searched for different types of shock. I clicked on one and looked at the youtubers page to see certifications and subscribers. Then I looked at the comments on the video. I didn’t see users saying, “I am an paramedic and this is untrue!” so I continued on. This is helpful for me, because it offers lectures whenever I need one. I’ve also found it's great when you want to get your head out of a textbook and mix things up.
The second way I prep for tests is mostly centered around taking the NREMT exam. This is only helpful for big tests like the SAT or NREMT. I go into the app store and find a daily quiz app for my test and download it. At this point I have four of them taking up my phone storage. Everyday they supply you with different released questions from these standardized tests. I can do the questions whenever I find myself swiping bored on my phone. These are beneficial to me, because if I get all of the questions correct then I feel accomplished and well studied, but if I get a random unknown question I can then look it up and be prepared for next time.
