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

Some test preparation practices that I use is making flashcards and review the notes that I took. Another one that I usually do is just going to my teacher and just asking him/her for help on the topics that I was struggling with. In my opinion, I prefer just going to the teacher and asking for help because I feel like its the best option because the teacher is going to explain what you don't understand so that later when your alone you will understand. If you make flashcards, it depends if it's for memorization then that would be a good option, but if it was for a subject like math, I wouldn't prefer that.
I feel that going to the teacher for help works for me because I am the type of person that I need something to be explained well in order for me to understand something very well. In other cases, flashcards also work for me because it's easy to remember the answer to the question when you go through those questions multiple times. I connect reviewing my notes and making flashcards together because I use my notes in order to make the flashcards. So that helps me with reviewing for tests and it works for me.
