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

The one thing that never fails to help with preparing for a test is studying. How I study for a test is I make flashcards or make a Quizlet to help memorize vocabulary or even math formulas. This helps a lot but not if I try to cram studying into one night or the day of the test. I usually take a chapter or two depending on how long a chapter is and study that chapter the whole day. I do this throughout the whole day and not all in one sitting. I try to relax and not stress the fact of the test. Another useful way to study for a test is to make flashcards and hang them up around the house. Every time I see them I read them out loud. This helps me recognize and memorize the terms or formulas that are written on the flashcards.
