Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
I use the practice for all my classes so this year I have 6 Google Sheets created and different lists for each unit test within those classes. At the end of each semester, this method is really helpful for finals week because I can clearly see which concepts I initially needed the most practice on and review those topics more in-depth than another concept where it only took 1-2 review sessions.
In particular with my math and science courses, this method works really well because thirty minutes to an hour each day allows for just the right amount of practice problems. For history classes where content is more memorization based I use flashcards. Depending on how much time I have I will either create physical flashcards or I use the app Quizlet on my phone and review whenever I have the chance. I find that this method also keeps me accounted for my English class where each day we have assigned readings because the spreadsheet tracks each day.
