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

Having a good study habit or routine is very important to have in order to succeed in school. For me, my studying does not start the day before the test. I would either start a week before the test or even start when I get the information for the test. For example a week before a test, I would spend at least 30 minutes to an hour to review a part of a section of the test or review vocabulary with flashcards and outlines. I would repeat this step and until the day before the test. The day before the test would be review over the content of the test and because of studying a week before I would retain more. In school, I learned in my class, AP Psychology, about the spacing effect. The spacing effect says that learning it better when it is spaced out and more will be retained in the long term memory. My study habit makes me ready for the test by not stressing from cramming all the information on the dat before test.
