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

The best method for test preparation that works for me is color coding and visuals. I like to color-code sections of the course material to group the information that way all through the notes and flashcards that I create I can use the same color. I also like to add useful pictures and diagrams into my notes that way I have a reference to the information I am trying to learn. This practice works for me because I am a visual learner. It is hard for me to understand if it is not all organized and presented in this manner. Color and images help me associate the information and also help in retaining it as well.
