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

The best method that has worked for me over the years includes repetition. When I have anything I need to remember I make flash cards and keep them on me at ALL times. I pull them out anytime I have downtime. I even review them while driving instead of listening to the radio. I possibly look like a crazy person talking to myself in the car. I am also a writer, if I write out a summary of study material it helps me remember and is an easy reference when I get to another section and ask myself “wait what was this other thing?”. I also make the notes using different color pens. I have read before that color helps your brain remember! Plus it makes it more interesting to look at. Sometimes I make a song or saying to help remember something in sequential order. It can be fun if you make it fun! Those are my tried and true methods to test preparation!
