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

I believe that I have great test preparation practices. Obviously, there's plenty of room for improvement, this being said the habits and practices that I have now have worked very well for me over many years. One study habit that I try to incorporate is to study for a test early on. Not cramming the day before, but rather setting yourself up to study a week in advance. This way the content is ingrained in your memory so you don't have to worry about forgetting anything. The other study habit that has also worked very well is scheduling. By scheduling your work load you can minimize your stress and pressure. By knowing exactly what to study for each day, and prioritizing your work load, you can lower your stress, which will indirectly improve your studying, in order to perform better.
