Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
This may be frustrating to others around me, as I am constantly reading information out loud, but it has greatly benefited me. By reading out loud, I am able to read the words, and say them back to myself so that I can hear them again. This helps my brain to better understand the information I am reading, because I am able to see it, hear it, and write about it, rather than glancing over it. Reading the information in my head is simply not enough. If I read the information purely in my head, I have figured out that I am more prone to skipping over information. When I say what I am reading out loud, I do not skip over information, otherwise what I am saying will not make sense. When I write important information that I have read, I am able to understand the information much more efficiently. My own hand is writing it, therefore I have to pay attention to what I am writing. These techniques have greatly benefited me, and I plan to continue to use them throughout my college education.
