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

For a test I complete all reading, activities, practice tests. I make flash cards and use them after each chapter to review the past. I set a test date and time I give myself 3 days to study all my flash cards and then review any hard reading materials. I like to spend time going through the flash cards twice then take a small break then go over them again. I think that for math its best for me to go over practice problems and get the checked to make sure I know what I am doing. I think since my is my best subject I have to do less studying because it comes so easy. History classes I have to spend more time and more effort charts, tables, flashcards etc. I think this all works for me because I have been doing it since I was in 7th grade, it is my routine, it just comes easy and seems to work well. I think that by making flash cards, charts, tables after I have read the materials, and done activity then it allows for it to be exposed to my brain a 3rd time in different form. But not only can I reuse the cards to study until i get it all right, flash cards are very helpful for a final exam, because I already have all the needed info at my finger tips. I think this has also been very beneficial for me because I have made the deans list every semester (4) this is my 5th and i have a high pass rate with 3 months left I have one class to finish before I can add more which would mean I am excelling. I really hope that I am picked to receive this scholarship, I work hard, and do my studies to make sure I get the best grades possible.
