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

One of my main test preparation practices is to include exercise in my studying whether it be by walking my dog or going to the gym. I do this by studying for about an hour then taking a break to go exercise. I have found that the break to exercise allows for me to have a clear head when I come back and helps me focus on the content in front of me. By going to exercise I feel more energetic because after awhile of studying your brain begins to feel tired but exercise brings back that energy that can then be directed towards studies. Another test preparation practice I use is the method of giving myself a reward. One of my joys in life is Chick-fil-A so I tell myself that if I finish a chapter or study my notes then I can go treat myself to food from Chick-fil-A. By doing that I am more motivated to preparing for a test. Both of these methods have helped me achieve better test scores in my educational career.
