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

The best method of preparing for a test that I have used is what I call the 4-way perspective. First, you want to write down the actual definition or process of the thing you are trying to learn. Secondly, you want to link this definition to something you are familiar with (e.g. the scientific method will link with the first time you learned how to tie your shoes through trial and error). The third thing you want to do is draw an image showing the process without using any words or numbers (you cannot use the color black). Lastly, make a joke out of the topic - this can be in any sort of format that you want. This can be a one-liner, it can be a short comic strip, or this can be a sarcastic sentence (just have fun with it). That's it. I hope this helps!
