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

When it come to studying and preparing for tests my go to practice is to create and use my own flash cards. I love flash cards for a lot of reasons. First of all, they can be used to study several different subjects and topics. I've used them for everything from memorizing dates in history to learning the parts of the brain and case studies in psychology. Secondly, I love that I can hand make my own flashcards to year. Despite the fact that people constantly tell me that there are so many websites such as Quizlet, that can make flash cards for me, I love to make them myself. This is because it allows me to further learn the material before I actually start studying. I have to thoroughly understand the information in order to condense it onto a flash card, and therefore I am able to enhance my knowledge. Furthermore, it had been proven that you remember things better when you write them down which is another benefit of making flash cards. I have even found ways to use flash cards to study for more analysis based tests by finding key words and phrases that will trigger my memory. This study method has helped my not only pass, but ace hundreds of tests during my academic career and is my favor way to prepare for exams.
