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

Studying for a test is definitely a given that not only me, but I'm sure many many others do almost daily. One thing I always do to prepare for an upcoming test is make a review for myself. I'll take some of the hardest, medium level, and easiest questions off of homework that I have and apply them to myself in a few different ways, whether that mean changing context, numbers, or anything else to have a variety of questions to aim at myself. I've found this to be effective in it that I get a range of different questions, hard, medium, and easy, and am able to easily see what makes a question hard and/or easy. Another method I use to study is to get a friend who is in that class involved. For example, I would go over to a friend's house to study for a test. We would go over the whole method I have previously mentioned. This method works better if you prefer to work with other people, it gives a sense of being with your friends while doing something important. Another method I use requires a review already made or to be given by a teacher. This is to just bring out the review whenever you have free time. This will maximize usefulness of time and study. These are just a few of my tactics but they work well for me.
