Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
For my college exams, I still utilize tried and true methods like rewriting content and creating and practicing flashcards. However, one of the best test preparation practices I have adopted in college is creating and taking pre-tests. In order to do this, I collect information from instructors or the syllabus to determine the type of exam that will be given, such as short answer, essay, multiple choice, or combined answers. I collect my past quizzes and exams from the class that have material and structure relevant to the upcoming test. I use the known structure and possible content questions, as well as any review guides provided, to create my own sets of questions and answers. I practice taking these mock exams in the format that the test will be provided - online or by hand on pen and paper. One free online resource I have been able to use in creating these practice materials is Quizlet.com, where I can also use traditional methods like creating online flashcards and inputting vocabulary and definitions to practice.
