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

When I study for a big test or exam, I go over all the past topics we have hit on and anything I have highlighted. After reading over the material, I ask someone to quiz me on them. If I get any wrong, I review those wrong answers and have them quiz me again. I do this multiple times before a test. If it is for the ACT or SAT, I go over topics that are on the test that I don't remember (geometry or advanced math) and then do practice tests online and in paper. When taking the practice test, I make sure to stay within the time frame the test is actually given in, so I can practice pacing and the layout of the test. I also read over tips from students who have taken these tests so I can not make some general and elementary mistakes.
