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

Testing comes with its own specific challenges; preparation for the test even more so. Our current generation has found themselves swamped in extra classes, AP exams, and placement tests. While the usual advice is to work more, I have a better idea; work less. Specifically, to work less across a large amount of time.

Studies show that spaced repetition is the easiest and fastest way to retain information. Our culture is prioritizing mental health more than ever, rightfully so when increased stress leads to an increase in suicide attempts in teenagers and young adults.

So while I study, I breaks. I will listen to music, nap, or cook, then I'll go back to what I was studying; and it works.

You can't take care of studies, if you don't take care of yourself first.
