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

I do a lot to prepare for tests. I take notes on chapters outside of class while in class I only focus on writing down key points the professor explains. Usually, these practices help because I am able to focus on what was being said in class and fix my notes from the chapter accordingly. I also will make notecards for definitions. I will typically study throughout the week and chew gum to help retain the information through other senses. Before the test, I will chew the same gum to help remember what I was studying for over the past week.
