Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
Sophomore year I took my very first AP class, and boy was I struggling more than ever. I barely made it every nine weeks with an eighty, AP Lang was a new level of dedication. Despite knowing I was not the best I still signed up for the AP exam. This time learning information was not going to help but instead practice was what I needed, so I did. My teacher gave me a practice test book with tons of practice tests in them. I started two months before the AP exam and did about two full tests per week on top of the ones she was giving out in class. Finals came around and I ended up with a three on her mock exam and a three on the actual AP exam.
Last but not least we have my personal favorite test preparation practice, and it is using a Quizlet. The amount of times that Quizlet helped me last minute study for a test the day of is countless. It makes studying more interactive for students who have a hard time focusing the traditional way of reading the textbook. I loved Quizlet and if I could use it to study for any test you better believe you would see me making a study set for whatever unit I needed to learn. I definitely change the techniques I used to prepare for a test depending on what it was, and I think that is the way it should be as not every subject can apply to the same technique.
