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

Efficient test preparation stems from proper time-management. Test preparation is not only limited to time spent reading/studying the material that one will be tested on. To me, one must ensure that they are taking a holistic approach to caring for their mind, body, and spirit or will. One must maintain a healthy diet that consists of fruits, vegetables, and lots of water. Too, one must make sure that a substantial amount of rest is had because that allows for the brain to function better. In addition to that I believe one should make sure they take time to do things they enjoy within the test preparation process. When all these conditions are met I believe one is ready to properly prepare for a test. Their mind will be healthy (from the time spent resting and doing preferred activities), their body will be well (from proper sleep and a healthy diet), and their will/spirit to do good on the test that they are preparing for will be strong because they've taken healthy preparations to their preparation. If one is sub-consciously prepared then their conscious efforts will be more rewarding.
