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

To prepare for a test, for example the AP Calculus BC test which I just took, my favorite method is making a large sheet of formulas and definitions, both to have for the test as well as to practice my knowledge of them by passive recall. I also go through videos on Kahn Academy for any of the concepts that I had found myself to struggle with. If I really didn't understand anything I would email my instructor about the topic in hopes that they would provide some insight for my question. I would jot down the information if they get back to me and then revisit it later with a fresh set of eyes. Through these different methods, I was able to go into my AP test and feel 100% prepared for it. I had absolutely no doubt in what I was putting down for my answers and I highly recommend doing a personal cheat sheet, it helps with thinking in a stressful environment.
