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

It can sometimes be hard for me to start studying although I know that it is very important. Therefore, I study over multiple days to make it a less painful experience. The first most important thing to do when studying is spreading your study time out over multiple days. The second most important thing for studying, for me, is writing and rewriting out the information that you need to know. This not drills it into your head but it is shown that when you write something down it is much more likely for you to retain this information. Therefore, I spend lots of time writing and rewriting the information that I need to know within my various notebooks. I write this information in lots of different colors, because I once heard, from my older brother, that using different colors can also help retain information.
