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

My favorite test preparation is looking over my notes,studying, and taking practice tests. Then write down the topics I missed on the practice tests. Doing this method is helpful to me because I know what I need to study and what to focus on more for the test. It’s all about strength and weaknesses. If you have a weakness in a topic you’ll study more on rather than focusing on your strengths. Many times people who study don’t look at their weaknesses because they think they know what they're doing. But that isn’t true because the test can be made up of many topics and you need to be good at everything in order to succeed. I always do this method because it helped me succeed in all my courses. I strongly believe in strengths and weaknesses when I’m studying for a test. It also saves you time for studying knowing what you do and don’t know. I recommend this method to people because when it comes to studying, time is the key. People should realize that time is everything and you shouldn’t wait until the last minute to start studying. It’s not good to cram many months of work in your brain on the test because you’ll fail and your brain wouldn’t process all the information absorbed. Doing this method will save you time of studying and also knowing what you know and don’t know.
