Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
To begin studying for the test I go through my notes each night after class and then a week before the test I start going back through everything. I then create note cards for factual question and answers, and create practice tests for myself to take. I read through the text book and answer all the questions and essay prompts it has available. If I have any questions or struggle with a topic I schedule an appointment with my professor at least two days before the exam to get clarification to make sure I am as prepared as possible.
This system works best for me because I am consistently studying for the exam and keeping up with the class lectures and topics covered. I feel doing this I retain information from the beginning of classes and feel I know the information rather than memorizing for the test and forgetting all the information after taking the exam.
