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

Preparing for exams and quizzes is crucial for students to stay on top of their classes. I do my best when I study for a few hours with small, ten minute breaks every hour or half hour. My most difficult courses right now are Calculus II and Physics I. I do the best on exams when I go through lots of practice problems. Reviewing and becoming familiar with the processes and types of questions I come across helps me to best prepare for my upcoming tests. I also do well when I review in big groups with others in my classes. Collaborating with them and asking them to help explain to me concepts I don’t fully understand is a huge help when I am preparing for exams. Utilizing their tips and understanding of the material definitely helps to boost my scores.
