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

I think overall what works best for me is to create flashcards that I go over about a hundred times. If I understand the words and get ever one of the flashcards correct, I am usually ready for the test. Focus is my main goal, and having the discipline to do this is vital. I do not always want to sit down and create these flashcards so I have set myself up for success and motivate myself to get to work. I put on my study music and break out my fancy pens to create my flashcards. I think it is all about convincing yourself that you are capable and can do anything you set your mind to. I am a visual and tactile learner. I think knowing this is important, so I can set myself up to study the best that I can. These flashcards are a way for me to learn the material and understand what I need to know. Overall, the flashcards help me receive that A I always hope I acheive!
