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

My favorite way to prepare of a test is to create flash cards. On these flashcards I use diagrams, pictures, and silly words or phrases that correspond with the word or term on the card. I put these cards up on my bedroom wall so that I am constantly reminded of whatever terms I am currently focusing on. I find that this method works especially well when I am studying something with many parts or pieces to remember. If I can link the terms together with a silly phrase, I will be able to recall the term when I am tested on it. I am very forgetful if I am not fully invested in learning something and using picture or silly phrases give me something fun to focus on while still learning and studying what I need to.
