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

When it comes to preparing for an exam/test, the method I have found to be most effective is making flash cards. Of course, it depends on the type of exam and what you need to study for an upcoming test, but for the most part, flash cards have been my go-to method when it comes to studying for exams or tests. I think that the actual practice of making the flash card and then practicing key terms or concepts is a really good way to re-enforce the ideas and help you learn what has been covered over the course of the class. I think that building flash cards has been one of the most effective ways at getting me prepared for an upcoming exam or test and I highly recommend this practice to others. Of course, every one has their own ways and gimmicks of studying, the key is to find what works best for you and for me, that just happened to be flash cards. I have seen my test scores increase as well as my overall knowledge increase through the creation and studying of flash cards. There are other methods I have also found to be effective such as creating a study guide or practicing repeatedly especially when it comes to math. I think that everyone is unique in their own way of learning and what works for one doesn't necessarily work for another. The key is to find that perfect method and apply it everyday, which is what I have done for my preparation with flash cards. Thank you for reading this message!
