Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
Using this concept I began to study in the classrooms where I would take the test or one very similar. It wasn't as comfy as a warm blanket and tea, however, it changed my test scores for the better. Changing my study environment helped but I also realized just repeating definitions and terms takes much more time to encode it into even just short-term memory. So I started to connect the material I was learning into my life. An example would be if I learned about the cross-bedding of petrified sand dunes, I would connect it to when I hiked a trail called angels landing and the whole cliff face that was next to it was covered with geologic structures like cross-bedding. So I gave up the comfort and had to set apart more time to think about what I studied and every minute was worth it. It worked and my test scores showed it.
