Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
1. Start early and don't cram. Understanding the concept is vital to testing success. Reading through the text with the approach to understand the information instead of cramming for test helps with both multiplication and essay exams.
2. Practice tests. Taking practice tests when they're available helps understand the format of the exam and has helped me frame the information I'm learning to pass the exam. Understanding the approach of the exam can make a difference while studying.
3. Concepts. Being able to determine which aspects of the subject are likely to make it on a test is also important. With insurance, knowing dates, legislation, and the overall impact of laws is helpful to understanding the concept and focusing on those helped me pass my insurance exams.
For me, keeping calm and retaining my confidence in the subject matter help me pass exams as well. It's easy to get confused and flustered, and spending the right amount of time in advance understanding the subject improve my confidence.
