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

I feel like the most helpful test preparation strategy I have used is going over the information that will be on the test or exam with someone that is in the course as well. This not only helps me fill in any blanks that I may have or help reinforce certain topics that I could either be struggling with or do not fully understand or comprehend. But, this could help my classmate, which is something that I have seen as very helpful, as it has been very good to me to help my classmates, because if I can talk through and reanalyze the topics, it also can help me remember the subjects and any information relevant to the assessment that i could end up needing. Another way that I have gotten better scores is simply asking for help whether it be from an instructor or from a classmate that has a better grasp of the content than I do. This is extremely helpful as it can lead to me understanding things that can not be given to me through the normal class period instruction times. This practice outside of the classroom allows for me to take better and more enriched notes on the topic, that I can not usually get to in a normal class period. Also, this strategy helps me find topics that I know I am weak at and should pay more or better attention to, and find topics that I excel in and do not necessarily need help or reassurance in.
