Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
Also, remember that studying is all about repetition, don't study something one time and then assume that you'll remember it for the test! Before you start on a new topic, review the old one, just so that your brain begins to connect the topics together, this is another reason why it's better to study in smaller increments than trying to cram the night before.
The last study tip that I would give to use outside sources! Websites, student success centers, tutoring centers, private tutors, teachers, classmates, professors, a sibling, or a parent! Don't just try to rely on yourself or continue to study the wrong way when you know that your method is not working for you. A personal favorite of mine to use is quizlet. For example, say you do wait till the last minute to study for a test you know that you understand most of the materials, but you wanna run through them one more time! You can log onto quizlet, and type in a few keywords about your topic, and soon you're presented with at least 5 different sets of flashcards that you can study! Like I always say, study smarter not harder.
