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

I have great test preparation practices that help me achieve high grades on tests. When preparing for a test I read all of the material that I will be potentially tested on then I type up detailed notes that are organized by topic. I print up the notes and read them multiple times because I feel repetition is the key to understanding new concepts. After I do this, I test myself at home before taking the actual test. If I am having a hard time remembering a complex concept then I will make up a mnemonic that I will attach to the concept. I never take a test without feeling prepared which allows me to have very low test anxiety and achieve a high grade.
