Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
I believe one of the greatest test preparation practice is to rewrite your class notes after class as you are reviewing and looking over everything daily. This allows me to review what I am learning while also being able to highlight anything I missed during the lecture that I find important or I may want to relook at since it is harder to understand. While doing this, I am able to form questions to ask my professor that I may not have realized that I had during the lecture. As well as begin to create other test preparations such as flashcards of the important main ideas that I am able to carry around between classes and test myself on the material. Another test preparation I like to make while rewriting my notes are practice questions, this way when the test is coming up I go back to these questions and test myself on the knowledge I have and be able to know what material I know and what I have to review.
This works for me as each of these test preparation practice allows me to review the information while also identifying anything that I may have questions about or should spend more time studying. Therefore I am not spending time studying information that I already know and more time on what I should be focused on so I am prepared for the exam.
