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

The practices that I do in order to prepare for any test varies based on subjects. If I have a math test I practice on Khan academy, make my own practice problems and do flashcards for terms and equations. For an English, or vocab related test I make flashcards and I think of mnemonic devices to help me remember them. For example the layers of the skin are basal, spinosum, lucideum, and corned. I think of ingredients like basil, spinach, granola and lucky corn. I know this sounds crazy but things like this help me remember. Other than flashcards I always check out study guides that the teacher gives out and I go through the material throughly and divide it into what I understand and what I don't. I think my strategies are good but they could improve.
