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

For me it's going somewhere very quiet and relaxing, making sure I got good sleep and ate well. These are very important for a person in general but with these needs fulfilled I am 100% focused on studying and getting ready for my test. If these needs are met then I am not distracted. I am not getting up or taking time away to eat and or tired and not really taking in great information needed for the test. Gives me more time and Energy to focus on the task at hand and that is preparing for my test and acing it! I am a single mom this may require me to sleep while the kids are at school so I can stay up late after they go to bed for quiet time or getting a babysitter to have a quiet period to study as to not be pulled away to feed or tend to the children not getting the proper time to study and prepare. I also may have a family member test me on things that will be on the test to see if I'm ready or see what I might need to go over again.
