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

One of the most helpful habits for me is to prepare early. This includes attending class and doing homework. The steady and gradual learning helps me so that I’m not cramming right before the exam. Another thing that helps me is to find a quiet place to study. As much as I love the comfort of my home, I find myself easily distracted by roommates, food, or technology. I am able to focus and stay on task better in the library. Additionally, I am a strong believer in study breaks. There is definitely a point where studying is too much. I try to take productive breaks by doing things like taking a walk or cleaning. That way I don’t get sucked into the vortex of technology and stay there longer than intended.
