Test Preparation Practices

Junior and Senior years of high school are loaded with many state standardized tests, as well as, the pressure of the SAT or ACT exams for college entrance. As a high school student, I had a certain ways to study for these exams. I tend to lean toward technology for my study needs. Technology study programs are easy to understand and convenient to use.
One way I would study was to use online prep courses, which worked very well, because it showed the breakdown of my strengths and weaknesses. I concentrated on my weaknesses. Once I mastered the identified weaknesses, I would work on perfecting my strengths. These programs would have easy access to study questions or practice problems that I could work on at home, school, or on the go with my cell phone. Teachers at my high school would also promote certain study programs that we could access online. Our school issues ipads for every student, and it was important for our school that students use the ipad for studying needs. It is common at my high school to see students on their ipads studying for the upcoming exams.
I believe this method made it possible for me to be successful on my exams. The analysis tools were very helpful in understanding my personal needs, and gave me a path to success. I would recommend studying using online test prep. The resources are easy to use and understand.
