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

Preparing for tests and quizzes is an immensely important part of being successful in school. Having good studying skills is essential in order to reach your academic goals and makes the test taking process less stressful. When I prepare for a test I like to start studying at least a week prior to the test and avoid last minute cramming. I first like to look through my notes and highlight important information. I then like to make flashcards on all of the information I learned for that unit. Next, I assign a certain number a flashcards for me to study each day. Finally, I like to take as many practice tests as I can to better prepare and feel comfortable with the material I will be tested on. Also getting a good nights sleep and eating a good breakfast as cliche as it is does help prepare for a test. My process in order to prepare for a test has always worked for me and has allowed me to achieve my desired grades.
