Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
First, I take notes for that class the day before so that I have some kind of understanding of what the professor will be discussing. With those notes I make sure I am organizing the notes by headings , and subtle’s. After I get my notes all written out I make sure to go back through it and highlight information that sticks out to me. Then the next day of class I listen to what the professor mentions in his speech about the lecture. While doing so I write down any additional information I find essential to the chapter.
Second, when I get the chance to make it back in my room I lay my notes across the table and I make my own study guide. I put key words in bold texts or even words I quite don’t fully understand. I make sure that if there is any methods apart of the notes that I put those in italics. I bold the text so that if there is a chance that I see those words it will help jog a memory of what the words mean. Then I make the answer key to the study guide making sure it is in my own words.
Last, but not least I go through my professors study guide if provided with one. Then I compare my study guide to the professors seeing if I was on the right track. Then I look over my notes the next morning before my test. I have been doing that for all my test , and have yet to not pass one. That is my great test preparation practices.
