Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
I use educational videos the most because I am a visual learner. When I say educational videos I mean ones that are taught by teachers on their respective courses. I am able to find any video on any topic I need to study from. It’s the most effective way to help me learn and get the grade that I have earned.
The next effective method I like to use are quizzes. I usually use a website that generates a quiz on the topic that I choose. I also like to have someone quiz me on the topic if I have a study guide. The generated quizzes help me because I can get use to taking the test/quiz so I won’t be as nervous on test day. Having someone else quiz me from a study guide helps me memorize and study the content.
The last study method I use-- and probably the one I use the least, is flashcards. Now I don’t use it least because it’s less effective, but I use it least because it’s most effective for the one class I use it for--Spanish. I either go online and find flashcards made by teachers or I make my own flashcards; which is probably the best way to study since I am writing out the information first, I’m memorizing it better.
These test prep practices help me study days before a test and lower my chances of going into a test and knowing I'm going to fail. I know I can rely on these test prep practices to help me study and get the grade that I have earned.
