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

My favorite test preparation would have to be flashcards, especially when it comes to memorization of terms. I love them so much because they are really convenient, easy to make, and inexpensive. As someone who has taken over 10 AP courses in high school, was a captain cheerleader and worked part time, squeezing in time for my studies was not very easy. With flashcards, I could study on the train home, in the bathroom, passing period, while eating lunch or anytime I had a couple of extra minutes. I ended up getting not only Straight A's all of highschool, but 4's and 5's on all my AP exams. I really do believe it was the studying habits I had formed. In addition to flashcards, I also would use review books for my course. I love review books because they are a good refresher, and baby down the content if you do not remember or do not understand. I have found that these are the best ways to be prepared for large exams.
