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

est practices depend on the person but personally, I like to go to collegeboard and print out SAT and ACT practice tests that were used from before or use khanacademy. The print outs are old test that were used before and they are very helpful. khanacademy can help with your weaknesses as they show what you did wrong in the last test. I usually study a month or so before the actual test date. I study in time intervals instead of cramming as that did not work out the last time. For SAT, it consists of a reading, writing, and math. I usually look for the writing and language part as I am weak in that. This section is usually 35 minutes and 44 questions. I time myself and do the practice problems, go over the wrong answers and then reflect. With that I would go to khanacademy and practice the problems there. Then, take a break as you can’t comprehend everything if you cram. Then I do a different section which is math. Then do the same steps. This usually takes 2-3 hours out of my day. I do this slowly before the actual test date.
