Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
If I know it’s a vocabulary quiz/test, then I will write down all the vocabulary terms mentioned; then I will identify which words I don’t comprehend and employ an application called, “Quizlet.” Quizlet is an amazing and easy way for me to learn my vocabulary terms. I can study and even test myself on the terms. Eventually, when I feel a little more confident I will try to apply the newly learned material to everyday experiences.
If I know that the test will be on the taught material I will make sure that I have all of my notes gathered. I carefully skim through the note and highlight anything I may not understand; sometimes I get too nervous to ask my teacher for extra help, I want to be like the rest of the class who knows and understands the material, whether they’re pretending to comprehend it or not. So when I feel too nervous to ask for extra help, then I will skim through the internet explore, until I see relatively similar lesson that could be online, then rewriting more in-depth notes on the particular subject. But if nothing helpful can be found on the internet explore; YouTube. I’ve been taking advantage of the YouTube app recently in watching lessons on just about everything. I use it for my math lessons and even Geography. I would definitely consider myself a visual learner, so seeing everything written out about a particular lesson with various explanations and examples seriously enhances the learning/studying experience.
