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

Some of my best test preparation practices include reviewing vocab, watching videos on course content, and taking practice tests! In the midst of preparing for AP Tests, my favorite approach so far is using the online resource - KhanAcademy. They offer short instructional videos and multiple-choice questions to help refresh the material. The more involved practice tests I can find online are a great opportunity for me to not only see where my strengths and weaknesses lie, but they also help me practice completing my tests in the time allowed. I time myself on these practice tests and see if I may have finished my test too quickly, or too slowly. These test preparations work for me because I need course content fresh in my mind, and I like to know how my tests operate. I don't want to give up valuable time due to confusion.
