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

My first piece of advice would be to start slowly studying a couple of days before. This way you know what information you do and don't know and you have time to prepare. I like to go through my notes and highlight the things I don't know so I know what I need to spend the most time on. Also, making flashcards helps a lot because you are rewriting the information which helps it stick in your brain better. Additionally, watching videos on the topic I find helps a lot. Having someone else teach it in a different way might make it easier for you to understand or help further your understanding of the topic. And lastly, don't stress about it too much, you will do the best you can and that's all anyone is asking for. Plus one test grade isn't going to determine the rest of your life.
