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

In order to prepare myself for testing, I really like to look at the material a couple weeks before if it is a big test and even the day before just to make sure I have the information fresh in my mind. When I have a big test coming up, studying by myself works out better for me and I just repeatedly look over the information. If it is something smaller, studying with someone else really comes in handy for me. In doing that, it helps me retain the information better. When I study by myself for a big test, it works because I do not get distracted. For the small tests, I feel more motivated with the extra help of a friend. Another thing that helps me is high lighting important things in my notes and going over them. When I saw something that was highlighted, I knew that it was something I had to remember.
