Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
As mentioned earlier another studying method I use is repetition; in recent semesters this is through the repetition of listening to lectures, completing study guides, practice test or any additional guides used in my class to study. I find repetition very useful when studying because it provides an opportunity for me to review what I do know, and practice material I am unclear about. For instance, within the past 2 semesters, I had classes that relied on lecture material only that was prerecorded each class. For me, it was important to re-listen to each lecture while completing the unknown information on my study guide. After this, I utilized the Pomodoro Method to physically read over the material before ending my study session. By the following day I would complete the practice exams with B average scores, and then continue to study as I have in previous sessions. Other ways to use repetition is having a colleague or friend quiz you with index cards, this is useful because it shows accountability for incorrect answers, someone can redirect me by restarting the quiz (flash cards). These studying tools helped me with improving my test scores and GPA.
