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

When I was starting High School I had no idea what test preparation practices worked best for me. At first, I thought that reviewing the study guides was enough for me to get a decent grade on my tests. But since I struggled to retain information I knew I needed to find a new way of studying. After a lot of trial and error, I finally figured out the best test preparation practices for me. Quizlet flashcards and the quizzes that come with it help me the most for tests as they are a quick and easy way to make flashcards online. Flashcards in particular help me remember information for a long time. Quizlet uses the flashcards that I make and makes games, quizzes, test, etc. Ultimately, the best preparation and the only way I can use quizlet effectively is good note taking. I found that taking notes on the computer is the best for me as I am a slow writer and tend to miss information when writing my notes. I do not use a special note taking app as I find google docs to be effective for note taking. I use different tools such color, highlight, font, underline, etc. to have the best notes. Once I finish my notes in class, I review, edit, and make flashcards from the notes I took. I make sure to give my self at least a week to study the flashcards as well. I have been using this method the most and found it to be the most effective when studying for my tests.
