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

In my first semester in college I took an aquatic biology class that required me to remember the parts of various species. It was very difficult at times, especially when I had to remember up to 20 parts of an animal with unusual scientific names. For example, the cheliped (claw), walking legs, appendages, and antennules in a lobster. What I did to remember was that I would draw out the animal and label it as I went. I would also test myself using 3D Paint to label pictures of the animals and repeat it over and over again. This helped me because I am a person who learns through repetition of drawing and writing until the information is embedded into my head.
