Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
Another way I like to study is through diving into concepts. For example, I will study why a team is called what it is, and how it correlates to other terms given to me, even if this is not expected on the test. This way, I have the ability to explain to myself my reasoning as I am taking a test. I do not do well with a scantron formatted test and when I take a test I always ask for a blank piece of paper to further explain my reasoning for each answer. By doing this, I have the opportunity to showcase my knowledge rather than hoping my answer is correct. Because I do this, I have an extra initiative to study. If I do not feel comfortable explaining my reasoning while studying, I know that I do not know enough about the subject at hand and will dive into it even more. Finally, one thing I do stay away from is pulling "all nighters" in order to study for a test the night before. If I am putting time into learning something, I value that opportunity and I study from the day we begin learning until the day we take the test. Even after a test is taken, I like to occasionally refresh my memory on the subject. I value my education and I hold myself to high standards. Though I have never personally used Mometrix, I strongly believe that its ideals are well crafted and provide value to each student who will use it.
In conclusion, I value long term memory and a well rounded understanding of a topic. When I study, I target these points.
