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

Testing can be a challenging task to many students around the world. The anxiety that arises when bubbling in answer sheets, answering short answer questions, or simply matching a diagram can be avoided with practical and effective test preparation strategies.

I have developed my own effective testing strategies by identifying my weaknesses and strengths. This is a fundamental step. My memorization skills are not the best, but my note taking skills are superior. I take note using the cornel note system, which forces you to create questions specific to the material you are going over. This system allows me to review my notes and practice my memorization skills.

I also use online test preparation softwares such as quizlet, which allows me to input my own terms and review them.
