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

I truly believe that I have found the very best test preparation for me! Everyone absorbs information differently, so no one benefits from the same study practices. For myself, I have found that creating flash cards very early on is the most beneficial to me. I study them in small increments up until the day of the test. I quiz myself daily, but not for a great length of time. I find that cramming all at once does nothing for me. I create a Quizlet and look over them twice a day for no more than 30 minutes. Doing this up until the exam seems to work the best for me, given that I truly learn the material instead of merely memorizing it. I’ll request a friend to quiz me, sometimes rewording the question, to make sure that I truly know the answer. This has proved to be the best studying tactic for myself.
