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

Studying for tests has not always been easy for me. I used to grab my textbook the night before the test and attempt to cram everything that was going to be on the test in my brain. However, I eventually came up with a better method once I realized this wasn't going to get the grades I sought after.

The week of the test I would either print two copies of the study guide the teacher provided or create my own based on the material we are going to be tested on. The first copy is for reviewing and learning any material I didn't know. This copy I write tons of notes and things I think might help me on the test. The second copy is a practice test. I act as if I am taking the real thing and if I still don't understand something, I go through the process again until everything is covered!
