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

I personally believe that I have the best test preparation practices because every test that I study for, I excel on. In my English Honors class we have challenging vocabulary tests every Friday and if you don’t study for them, you don’t pass them. Every week, Monday thru Thursday, I study 5 words at a time because there are 20 words in total. When Thursday comes around I have memorized all 20 words and their definitions and am able to get 90% or higher on each test each week. When I am studying I have to be in a quiet place with no distractions meaning no phone, music or people. When I am by myself and it is quiet I am able to concentrate and am able to talk to myself and say the words and definitions to myself without people thinking I am crazy. I have found that when I talk to myself and talk out what I am studying I am prone to remember the material and am able to succeed on the test or assignment that I am studying for.
