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

My favorite test preparation practices are rewriting, rereading notes, and coming up with little memorization tricks. Rewriting is rewriting definitions and important points of chapters or lectures. Rereading is rereading those notes that I took a couple of times to make sure I understand what I wrote. Coming up with little memorization tricks is either researching the words meaning further to make sure I know what everything is fully or coming up with little tricks like taking something the word sounds like that would hint towards its meaning. Researching the terms in definitions or descriptions of processes is helpful for me because I can be dyslexic, doubling down on my understanding helps me prevent this while taking tests. Coming up with similar sounding words to hint at definitions helps too when words are similar, like mitosis and meiosis.
