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

My favorite and most effective way to study is by using flashcards and quizzing myself! Using repetition helps the information get in my mind and helps it stick. Using flashcards and iteration, I can review the information over and over again until it sticks permanently. Phillippa Lally, a researcher at the University College London, conducted a study where he found that it takes 18 days to 254 days to form a habit. For me, studying and learning new things is in a sense creating a new habit. I want the things I learn to stick in my mind so I can recall the information as quickly as if it were an instinct.
