Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
All of my study habits are very similar. First, I read the text, whether it is music or an actual textbook. Then, I do outside research. Then, sometimes I make flashcards for myself. I go through the flashcards and repeat them until I know the material well.
This works for me every time. Repetition is the key to memorization, and most tests have something to memorize on them. You must repeat them a few times and then mix it up so your brain doesn't only know it in that order.
