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

I was never the student that could get away without studying. However, it wasn't until I was in the heart of nursing school, that I figured out the perfect study habit for me.

A peer and I started studying together and fell into a routine during our study sessions that worked for us. Together, we would work on filling out the exams blue prints. Once the blue prints were completed, and we had filled out all the information on each bullet point, the real studying began. She would take the blue print, and give me oral exams on each bullet point, repeatedly.

This worked for us because she learns best by reading and listening, and I learn best by recall. Together, we were very successful in our ADN, and NCLEX. Now, we are taking these study habits onto our BSN.
