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

Due AP season, I have definitely developed a test preparation to prepare for these exams. Specifically for my AP Psychology exam, I became to form a study sheet for every test that my teacher gave.I would collaborate with others as well and would all add in information for each exam on one Google Docs.The study sheets were no longer that 2 to 3 pages in order to keep everything simple .Towards the end of the year, I was able to look back on these study sheets to review for the exam. In addition, I created a vocabulary notebook because there are so many words to remember.I would also purchase Princeton review books because the practice test are very helpful.During this time where COVID-19 has impacted a lot of our educational system,it is very important to create a system at home for yourself to review these materials everyday till the online AP Exam.Because of the change in testing,it is also important to adjust to these changes and join tutoring sessions with you teachers online to answer any questions about topics you are confused about.A month before the test I would create a schedule in order to determine how I was going to use my resources every day to prepare for the test.I would change up my routine everyday because I know sometimes it can get boring doing the same thing over and over again.I would also create a study group with friends where you can talk about different topics.It important that you choose people that will guarantee a balance of fun and studying.You don’t want to get to distracted and end up wasting your time.It is also important to really maximize your resources especially on the internet.It can be boring to review the same information the same way frequently so it is important to look online and find videos and even games that corresponds with the topic you have to study.Most importantly you must take care of your health because if you don’t take care of yourself you will not be able to retain as much information.
