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

To prepare for a test I like to skim over previously read content that may be on the test. I then read the questions at the end of the chapter and try to answer them correctly. I find that fill in the blank and multiple choice worksheets help with remembering content that I will be tested on. After reviewing and quizzing myself, I will explain and discuss with my husband the contents I may be tested on. I find that helps to cement in my head the content and helps me build my confidence. In areas that I may struggle with, I find that searching for youtube videos that may help explain better or visually show me a process of anatomy and/or physiology I may be studying at that time. I find that studying for about 2 hours once or twice a week helps to keep the content fresh in my brain. I will ask my professors for help if I am having trouble remembering or understanding a topic. Going back to school for my registered nurse license, I find that my classes are more of refresher courses so far due to my experience in the field as a licensed practical nurse. I'm excited to continue my education and complete the program to better myself for my family and be able to better contribute to my community.
