Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
There are many ways to better prepare for your exams. These include but are not limited to studying beforehand using revision, make sure to listen to what may be on the test, study for each section and take practice exams. Learning to study and learning to learn are different, yes. However, if you have not learned you just need to rely on your studying skills to memorize. This will be hard-wiring yourself with repetition and revision of what you have been trying to learn. Practice your exams and retry until you can get a perfect score on your practice exam.
What if there is no practice exam? You will need to look through all your notes making a guide for what topics need revision and look up practice exams in those certain topics. Perhaps even example final exams that have been made in your grade or course so it will be as similar as possible and you get your best chance.
