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

When I was in high school, I never needed to study to get decent grades. When I started my first semester of college where I was in a Medical Assistant program, I learned really quick that those study habits (or lack there of) from high school would not work for me, with a 19 credit class load. I quickly learned that organization and study habits are of the upmost importance. During my heavy course load with my first degree, I learned that accurate amount of studying, organization, and what worked the best for me is flashcards. Once I finished my program I had around 13,000 flash cards made within 3 semesters time. When it came to my boards, I passed the first time and once receiving my score, I only had 2 wrong on my boards. All of that is because of my impeccable studying. Now I'm planning on applying to PA school, with no worry on how I will do!
