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

Studying for a test can be difficult in a world full of distractions. There are smartphones, laptops, televisions, siblings, pets, and parents that can all cause you to lose focus. For me, I find that after learning the material in school, I go home and type out all the information on a popular, well-known website called Quizlet. Quizlet allows students to make flashcards and practice tests to help students memorize their information. But not only only does it have those tools, it also includes a learning section where it forces the student to actually learn and not just memorize the information. This "learn" tool is extremely helpful for me and many other students, and helps me do well on tests. Quizlet is especially helpful when studying for AP tests or finals, since all of the information from the course is written on these flashcards that you made. Personally, Quizlet helps me get prepared for any test, and has a variety of tools that helps all different types of learners. I have used Quizlet since I started high school, and have done great on every test I have taken because of it. Quizlet works for me because I need to know the information in order to me to memorize it. By this, I mean that if I am asked a question on a test, I can;t just memorize the answer, I need to know how I got that answer and how that answer can be applied to other questions. The flashcard function utilizes these skills and forces me to learn the information in a quick amount of time. Studying can be stressful, but Quizlet makes it easy for me to learn.
