Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
During my senior year in high school, the most challenging class was my dual enrollment class English 102. I struggled with meeting the professor’s assignment requirements and paying attention to detail. In this class, I was required to complete a discussion post every week; this assignment was all-or-nothing. This means that if you did not meet all of the requirements for the assignment you would not receive full credit. You would receive a zero. I struggled mentally with these assignments because I felt that I was completing them correctly before the professor graded it. But I still received some zeros on my assignments. Those zeros motivated me to pay more attention to the professor’s requirements. I even went to the professor for help to get tips on how to do better on her assignments. Eventually, I began to receive passing grades on all of my future assignments. I even got a 100 on the final exam. I learned that in life you must persevere in order to accomplish your goal. I believe that this course showed me that I need to fully follow directions and complete my assignments correctly and efficiently. Overall, my dual enrollment experience has helped me achieve great test preparation practices and perform well in my college freshman courses.
