Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
To begin, no matter what subject I am studying, I also cut out whatever distractive devices that I can. This includes turning off any nearby electronic devices to deter the possibility of being distracted if I get a notification or even just feel a desire to check my email. This is the first step that I take to prepare my area before a study session. Next, I enjoy splitting up larger concepts or topics into smaller chunks so that I am able to study efficiently so that I am able to memorize the material at a high quality. Being able to do this really helps me understand what I am studying, allows me to make short pop quizzes for myself, and also gives me the opportunity to truly understand what we are learning especially if I am having trouble with a certain concept.
The next test preparation strategy that I have is to never skip any class period. Missing out on any class, especially science and mathematics, can completely throw me off track the next class that I go to as I would've missed an entire chapter of material. Additionally, If I am struggling with anything before an upcoming test, I also prioritize going to my proffessors or tutors to ask any questions that I may have and to go over certain material or practice problems to make sure that I am understanding the general concept and not just how to work a specific problem.
