Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
However, over the years I’ve developed a few new strategies that always work for me, one of them being the inclusion of snacks. I love to snack while I study. Well one day as I was eating my snack and trying to read and review the chapters I need for a test the next day I found that if I only allowed myself to have a piece of the snack after every paragraph I felt more motivated to read. For example if I have gummy bears I will put one on each paragraph and when I finish the paragraph I can eat the gummy bear.
Another strategy I’ve taken up is color coding my notes. In using bright colors I’ve found that I’m more attracted to my notes and I want to read them because I love the colors. I’ll use bright blues, pinks, orange, etc all to catch my attention later. This has helped improve my review of my notes dramatically I practically want to read them everyday.
In using both of these strategies I’ve made amazing progress on my test and my assignments in general. I found both of these tremendously useful and anytime anyone has asked me I recommend and they have been a huge success amongst my friends and my peers.
