Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
The technique that I always use to study for my tests, especially for the ones that I have to memorize very specific information, is to rewrite in a set of flashcards my lecture notes with multi-color pens. Then, in the corner of every card, I make a fast sketch of the first thing that comes to my mind when I read the information that I just wrote. After this, I go through the flashcards that I made as many times as I can and the sketch that I put on that paper with a specific color always comes to mind along with the information that I wrote. It never fails and it is very effective for me.
The fact of knowing how you retain information best definitely made me more productive and it helped me to get more enjoyment out of every course that I have taken in college.
