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

Test preparation for me involves a few different steps. First, I gather up all of the material that I know will be on the test. I then go through the material and see what I don't know too well. From that, I begin to read over the material and try to let it really sit in my head. I personally learn well just by reading over things, so once I have done it enough it eventually just sticks. Once I am confident that everything has stuck well I leave it at that until the night before the test. On that night, I read over everything a couple more times to reassure that I am prepared for the test. On the day of the test it's all a mindset. I get my mind ready and confident that I will do well on the test. I do these things by listening to my music and reminding myself how I've much prepared for it. Just before the test hits the desk I know it's game time and I'm ready to go.
