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

As a high school senior I have spent the last 13 years of my life in school learning and taking tests. Over the years I have developed my own personal habits of studying and test preparation. One of my great test preparation practices is creating my own personal study guide to use. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses, so creating a study guide that is best fit to you can ensure you are able to cover all the areas you struggle with more. It allows you to focus in on your struggle areas so you can have a better understanding of them during the test. Creating a personal study guide also ensures you are learning to the best ability. Everyone learns differently, some people are visual learners, some are hands on, some are auditory, etc. So by making your own study guide you can make it in a way that best fits to you and the way you prefer to learn. You can create your study guide in any way you want, flash cards, recording yourself reading information and listening to it multiple times, or even just simply writing it down. Creating your own study guide ensures you can do it in the way best suited for you . Therefore creating my own personal study guide and using it to study is my best form of test preparation practice. Not only can I focus on what I am struggling on the most and need to improve on, but I can customize and create my study guide in any way that I want so it is best fit for me. That is why creating a personal study guide is great for everyone too, because again, everyone can make it personal and fit to them so they get the most out of it.
