Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
Before a test, I will often go to the library or another quiet place on campus and start reading through my notes repeatedly on my laptop and/or the computers provided there. I like to listen to music while I do so as well, as I feel it keeps me focused. When I am not at school, I often just sit in my room and read it from my desktop computer, and occasionally I will make print-outs for my parents to have so they can help me recite certain terms and/or definitions. I continue to do this at least 2 or 3 times a day for about a week, or until I feel comfortable enough with the information and I have memorized it well enough. So by test/exam day, I feel confident enough to get it done.
