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

My best test preparation practice would be the usage of flashcards. Writing the information on flashcards and reading them over and over works best for me. This is because I mostly do things by memorization, so reading them makes it stick to my brain more efficiently. Another great practice that I use is making practice tests. These are usually done after reviewing old tests in the same class. Questions are then chosen randomly from what I have and then I take the test under the same conditions if I was actually taking the test. This method works for me because it allows me to be under the same conditions I would if I were taking the test, this helps with test day anxiety as well. This method is also done randomly, the same way that a teacher would select questions to put on the test you are taking. The last method I use for test preparation is forming a study group with peers. This method works for me because I feel that it is best to work alongside like minded people who are trying to achieve the same goal. This method allows for you to get clarity on answers, because if another person understands it better they can explain it to the group so everyone has a chance to excel.
