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

The Test practices I have used over my years of primary school have been simple and effective in helping me maintain an above 4.0 GPA through my highschool career. First I talk to the teacher about the test; I learn about the material that is going to be on the test, which areas to study more than others, and also ask any questions I have regarding certain problems on the test. Secondly, I review the lecture notes to get a broad understanding and reminder of what I learned over the past weeks. I then go back and review the areas where I either struggled on, or was just not wrapping my head around it. The third thing I do is review practice problems that we went over in class with the teacher; This helps me take what I learned, and apply it to questions that I will see on the test. Finally, I make sure that I eat well and get a good night's rest to ensure that my brain will be functioning at 100% by the time I sit down, and begin the Test.
