Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
To focus my preparation and study time, I ask myself several questions: What concepts do I not completely understand? What definitions have I forgotten? What am I unprepared for? Once I assess these answers, I review those topics, re-watch lectures and review my notes. This helps me to strengthen my understanding and remember what I've learned. Having done that, I then turn to the course material and begin a general review of all topics, including the ones I just studied. This helps me prove that I know the material and am prepared for the test.
As part of my general review, I utilize flash cards, video lectures, textbooks, study guides, and ask others to help me review. I have found that a variety of methods is the best way to study as it helps segment my efforts and maintains focus. I’m confident that as I continue to apply these methods, I’ll continue to be successful as a student.
