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

During my first semester finals, I was completely overwhelmed by the amount of exams, essays, and presentations that were incoming. However, I reflected back on my high school career and tried to search for a way to calm my nerves so I could study better. Then my Eureka moment came! I began to meditate before studying for a new subject through associating the topics with daily life, just to refresh my mind, then I began short five-minute meditations before the exams and other final examinations. This helped my succeed in my first semester exams with straight A's and a healthier mind.
