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

To prepare for an exam, I try to give myself enough time in advance so that I don't have to cram the night before, but it is very difficult. A week before an exam, I will make a Quizlet of material that I need to know for the exam. I also like to go over my notes and make new ones so that better understand the material. If I have a friend that Is taking the class with me or has taken it before me, we try to study and review together. Notecards are very helpful in order to memorize material. When I have a hard time comprehending a subject, I use my good friend, Google. For example, when I need help understanding Calculus, one of my most difficult subjects, Google helps to provide examples on how to solve similar problems. To achieve and have a good grasp on a math topic, I try to solve the problem on my own and then check my work online to see if I get the same right answer. I wish that I was as good as Math as I am at English. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses, but with time and practice you can improve. Finally, to prepare for an exam make sure to relax an not stressing is the most important.
