Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
One study method that I developed in middle school and have used ever since is repetition. The most common is typically flash cards. Flash cards are a great way to cram knowledge. The trick with studying with flashcards is making your own pile. I have found through personal experience that while writing flash cards by hand on my own, I am learning and memorizing the material subconsciously. Another form of repetition studying I found to be effective was to simply rewrite any notes I had taken or been given. One final form of studying I have found to be beneficial is association, studying that pairs bits of knowledge in order to memorize facts. The most beneficial and effective way I have used association studying is by making posters. By making posters, I organize all the information I need to learn by blocking creating a visual representation of the material. I have often found myself able to visualize the poster and recall information based on where it was I wrote it during exams.
