Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
When exam time nears - about a week ahead of time - I begin preparation by redoing any homework problems the professor assigned previously. I also complete all of the teacher's practice materials (if available). This way, I familiarize myself with the professor's style of questions and anticipate what they might ask on the test. Additionally, I create a condensed (one or two page) study guide consisting of difficult concepts or things I am having trouble remembering. Lastly, about a day before the exam, I read through all of my notes for a final time to ensure I haven't missed anything.
I always make sure to utilize every resource offered by my professor whether it's a textbook, PowerPoint slides, or other supplementary readings. It's crucial to be cognizant of what the teacher expects you to learn. Furthermore, using additional resources (YouTube videos, supplementary books, etc.) allows a deeper understanding of concepts which can be useful in deducing answers to problems that you may not know.
