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

There are many resources that I utilize to help me feel prepared for my exams. First, I find a sufficient amount of time to study and a place where I can study efficiently. Another resource I utilize to prepare myself for exams, especially math exams, is gathering all my homework and notes from that particular chapter because the test will usually be very similar to the homework assigned. For midterms and finals, I use all my chapter tests from the whole semester and study off of them because they contain material that’ll show up on the semester midterm or final. Depending on the class, I also utilize study groups. It helps me to study with other people so that we can test each other and explain certain topics to each other. Finally, I take study breaks so that I don’t stress myself out or overwhelm myself too much.
