Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
Another approach I like to take before any (important) exam is to drink a lot of water and practice controlled breathing. I’ve found that many problems I would answer easily outside of a test become quite difficult during the test. Having more at stake during the exam heightens the nerves and dulls the mind. Practicing controlled breathing helps me calm down and focus on the questions to achieve my highest score possible.
Like I said at the beginning, there are tons of different ways to prep for tests and different things work for different people, though one that can help everyone is, pay attention and make sure to do the work. Practice makes perfect, and each of those worksheets that teachers commonly rattle off are good practice, so take advantage of them to make your tests perfect.
