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

When I prepare for a big important test, I first go over my notes that I have taken the past semester. I rewrite myself a study guide on important points that the teacher has said to remember for the test. I also add in anything I think is important and could be on the test. I also go over any worksheets, passed assignments, quizzes, and tests that I can use to add to my study guide. I make sure to ask my teacher if the test is over the whole semester or just what has been taught recently. I finish y study guide with all the important information I think I need to know and read over it. I also sometimes rewrite important points or formulas that i need to memorize. i try to keep my guide to one or two pages so it is condensed and easier to read as w whole. If it is too spread out, it is harder for me to know what is important. I also like to shorten things so I can remember the key phrase. Lastly, when the test is given, I write down what I have memorized on the test page so I do not have to worry about forgetting it.
