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

When I am preparing for a final exam or just any test I have a few things I must do in order to get the most out of my studying. I tend to get very bad test anxiety so I have found over the years that if I make it a game while I am studying it makes it easier for me to remember. The first thing I will do is go over the terms, equations, or what ever it is that. I am needing to study. I will then write them down on a flash card. I put the answer on one side and the word or what ever it is on the other, for me writing them down its like I am writing them in my brain so I will remember them better. After I write them down I usually test my self so I will go though the entire stack seeing if I know the material. If I get it correct I put the card in a pile and if I get it wrong it goes into a different pile and the point of this game is to go though them all until all the cards are in one pile.
