Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
When a specific point becomes challenging for me to remember, I simply write it over and over and over again. The repetition of the same information has to be copied for me at least 100 times. It was a practice I picked up in elementary school to study geography, spelling, mathematics, dance steps and my lines for drama.
When all else fails, I try to teach the concept to someone else. I try to find a peer, friend or family member that has knowledge in that area in order to be corrected after or along the way of teaching the concept. I also look for digital applications that teach the concept in new ways whether it is an actual app I can download, or find a reliable video source on the internet to show the concept or learn it in a new way.
By using these techniques I was able to pass some of the hardest tests of my life: my financial licenses series 7, series 63 and my pilot and instrument written exams. I was able to pass all of these tests within the same year and keep the concepts separated and retained.
