Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
It’s important to stay organized to prevent becoming overwhelmed with heavy material. I use multiple colors of highlighters and pens. Colored tabs to work by section and chapters. Also a trick I learned, when studying with flash cards I use colored flash cards or I separate the flash cards into distinct subjects. Having a huge stack of flash cards on my desk has lead me to procrastinate. I spend a few hours a day studying then I review. I continue to slowly add more material then review again. It’s all about what routine works best for you because everyone is different. I am a visual learner. Therefore constantly reviewing material helps me grasp the information.
Always keep an agenda to make sure your on top of your assignments and deadlines to prevent a rushed study session because the best preparation to guarantee a passing grade is to rest the night before. Pulling an all nighter will cause stress, tiredness, and a failing grade because of how drained we pushed our body. Remember to study smarter, not harder.
