Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
Every night after school, I review my notes from each class for about twenty minutes per class or until I fully understand the material. In my free tiem during school, I will make an online study set that covers the notes we have covered thus far. As we move on in the notes, I add to my study set. Using this method is so beneficial for me because it allows me to train my brain to recall small bits of information at a time. As a result, I strengthen my knowledge of the concept as I continue to review it.
Another test preparation strategy I use is outlining. I will highlight the main concepts of the chapter, write down any important vocabulary words, and ask myself questions as I read the chapter. This is in an effort to reassure myself that I know and understand the material to the best of my ability. If I am still confused on a certain aspect of the unit, I will ask my teacher. More often than not, they create a study guide that is based right off of the chapter with answers that are easily identifiable. This strategy only increases the knowledge I have pertaining to the class' material.
