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

My best test preparation method is by writing the topics needed to learn for the test and write it down on a piece of paper, which is an excellent study method since you are absorbing the information that is being written down. Afterward, I would place all notes in a binder and to where I can flip through the pages like a book, however, after every five pages of lessens needed to study for the test every five pages would contain a sort of candy or chocolate as a reward system for myself to continue to study in order to reward myself with candy. This is an excellent method to keep myself motivated to continue studying as well as a small break so I will not overload myself with work. Another test preparation practice that works for me is when I am studying, I will chew gum during the entire time, and on the day of the test, I will chew the exact same gum that I was chewing on when I was studying for my test. The reason why I do this is according to some articles it states that when chewing on gum while studying and then chewing the same gum on the day of the test will help the brain retain the information better since the brain recalls the information that was being processed during the studying and it helps recall the information better while taking the test.
