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

My favorite test prep strategies include creating flashcards and watching videos to deepen my understanding. When it comes to big tests like my college board AP exams, I rely on the use of colorful flashcards filled with formulas, definitions and examples. Using flash cards allow ideas to be separated and concise, the color captivates my brain allowing me to instill the information in my memory. As a visual learner, videos tend to come in clutch. By watching videos I am able to see examples and how to work through them that way on test day I can better remember the procedure needed to obtain the answer. YouTube and Khan Academy are great sources for finding different types of videos, preferable I look for short videos that give the essential information, so that I don't get bored of hearing unnecessary details. Using these strategies have always resulted in me acing my test whether it was french, math, or history.
