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

When it comes to preparing for exams in college, the first thing I do is make sure to have flashcards on hand. I have found that flashcards are the key to passing exams in college! College exams do not compare in the slightest to high school exams. For college, there are many hours that go into preparing. Another way that I have found to be extremely helpful is to color code my notes. If there is something that a professor says 'will be important', I always make sure to highlight it, star it or whatever it takes for my brain to comprehend it. During the transition from high school to college, I never thought that I would have to spend so much of my time studying and preparing for exams. I have been in college for a year and a half now and my saving grace is 100% flashcards. I use so many flashcards per course per semester it is unbelievable! Another thing that always helps me is to go to a quiet study area somewhere on campus where I can devote myself to studying!
