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

I personally feel like I challenge myself every time I prepare for a test.
First I write notes in my own words. I love using the paper mate flair felt tip pens to divide my notes into categories.
Then I make flashcards and try not to look at my notes while doing so.I'll also try and think of funny ways or meaningful ways to remember the material.
Lastly, I'll quiz myself multiple times for half an hour. Then I'll take a ten-minute break, and when I begin to study again I will stack the flashcards into the "I Know", " It Needs Work", or the "What is This???" pile.
Depending on the test I will often study with a group of friends using my flashcards.
I am able to write things down, practice, and visualize the answers.
