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

I typically use various methods to study for tests. I have a full schedule and need to utilize all of my time. More and more college classes are embracing digital text books with in chapter study guides and quizzes. I log the information provided in the study portion of the digital text books into a word or pdf document. Then, I use and app on my phone that reads various text documents to me. I can listen to them in my car, while I am working, cleaning, and much more. It has been extremely beneficial to my academic success. I am almost half way through my bachelors degree with a 4.0 GPA. I have learned that the act of typing and then actively listening to the information garners the best results for me. When I type, I am learning through both visual and kinesthetic. I have a tendency to remember things that I have typed because I can see a visual of the computer screen in my mind's eye and the act of typing is a form of tactile learning for me. Then when I listen to the document being read, I am tapping into the auditory learning portion of my brain. I am able to make the most of the memory connections when it comes to learning new material.
