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

My favorite way to study for a test is to practice a little each day. For example, when I have a week to get ready for a test I will study for at least fifteen minutes after school. While studying I review the notes I have made, and make sure I understand them. If I do not fully understand the material I will either look it up or ask for help. I usually ask either the teacher or another student who understands the material. One of the worst things you can do when you do not know something is to ignore it. When you ignore the material all you are doing is setting yourself up for failure. Studying is less about memorizing something and more about comprehending it. The reason this method works well for me is because it keeps the topic in my head, If I forget about something too long it makes it even harder for me to remember it. When I study a little every day it helps me better understand the material, and it gives me time to work on my other assignments in school. All of these reasons are why this is my number one method for doing well on tests.
