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

I think I have pretty basic test preparation practices. I usually go over any notes that we took and try to relearn all the things that we need to know and that I haven't looked at in a while. Depending on the different subjects or which kind of class it is I will take a different test approach. For example like if I'm studying for a math class then I will make sure I have done all the practice questions and all my homework so that I know how to solve the problems on the tests. But if I'm studying for English then I would probably read a book or review all the different terms that were covered. And if I'm studying for a science like chemistry I would definitely review my notes, my assignments and the teachers feedback that he gave me. If I'm studying for biology i also read through all my notes and the diagrams to memorize what all the different parts and names are. I did have a flash cards account for my biology because that way I could study on my own if I didn't have anyone around. But I find it works the best when You read through your notes and then after you get someone to ask some questions in order for you to have to explain it to them, this really tests me to see if I actually know what I'm talking about and know the stuff that's required in order to pass the test.
