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

My method that I use for great test preparation is repetition. This is the key to learning anything whether it's repeating math problems over again, or setting the same vocabulary word in different ways. For math problems, which I have recently been struggling with because I am in calculus which is. very hard course for me, I typically like to do some extra practice right before the test comes and I also will talk advantage of extra help to check if I am going the work correctly. It is also very important to make sure you stay responsible as you go through your course and understand everything you need to and asking questions when necessary. This also includes doing homework that the teacher assigns. This is the best study method for me for math. For English tests on books, vocab, history tests on history, and geography, and knowing science terms, you have to memorize things for a test along with understanding. Typically even when I know then information I still have a very difficult time memorizing things for tests. But I often study at least a week in advance before a test to make sure I am not cramming and I give myself enough time to memorize the information. I make quizlets and study using the flash cards on there along with the games. No matter what you retrying tolerant repetitions is the best way to get to know the information.
