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

Preparing for a test can be tricky. Some people aren’t as great as others when it come to testing. I am that person since testing doesn’t come as easy to me, I have try two times harder than some of classmates on test day. Finding many ways to study for a test is hard. It may take time to find the right method that works for you. People have to work at improving their testing skills and eventually they will get better. I have tried many strategies to find the one that fits me. I find that it is easier for me to use flash cards that are organized by color. This comes into to play when I am reading through vocab. I can look at a word and remember the color I matched it with to help me find the definitions. When I read multiple choice questions I can pick out the answer by thinking about the topic of the question and the color of the answer. Using colored flash cards has made a big difference; it helps keep my thoughts organized and my studying on track. Another advantage for me when using note cards is writing the question and answer. This helps me comprehend the question and remember it better when I am testing. This has helped me out a lot in the past and has increased my grades in class. Once I found the right stratagem to conquer studying, I no longer dreaded test day. I can now confidently walk in and take a test knowing that I did well on it.
