Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
I again faced the obstacle of test anxiety before my junior year of high school when I decided I wanted to start taking college classes for dual credit. To be eligible for some classes I had to take placement test. I had to walk into these test without any test prep. This time the test anxiety hit me so hard that I broke out in hives from head-to-toe. Again, I realized that I needed to prepare myself for when I need to take the ACT and SAT.
Learning to prepare and study in a way that is best for me has allowed me to complete over 35 college credit hours before graduating from high school — with a 3.58 college GPA and a 3.78 high school GPA. I know that these study habits and practices will help me as I enter into my freshman year at Baldwin Wallace University.
