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

Have you ever been engulfed in a test, and when you look up, you notice that there are only 5 minutes left with 30 questions unanswered? Although this is an exaggeration, time management is one of the most essential skills to have when taking a test. A student could be getting every question they answer right, but if it takes them 10 minutes to answer each question, they will still not make the score they want. The main test preparation I do is doing practice problems in a short amount of time. I try to equally divide the time it takes me to answer each question so that I become used to taking tests at a faster pace. I once was the girl with barely finished tests by the skin of my teeth, but now I can usually take tests in a shorter amount of time then the time allotted.
