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

When it comes to test prep, I consider myself to be a bit of a perfectionist. I’m even told sometimes that I prepare too much, which I didn’t even know was possible. When I’m studying, I like to use highlighters to color code and annotate my notes and use test prep tools such as Quizlet. I color code just about everything in my life, from my notebooks and folders for classes to the clothes in my closet, so my school notes are no different. I use different colors for different concepts: blue for vocab, green for models and diagrams, etc. I also love test prep sites like Quizlet. I made so many Quizlets for my sophomore year AP classes that I had teachers calling me the Quizlet Queen (a title which I gladly accepted). My test prep practices have lead me to be very successful in my academic career and I’m sure they will continue to serve me well as I head off to college.
