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

When preparing for a test I love to review in unique ways. Studying from a review sheet is boring and tedious. I believe in switching up your studying habits. The more often you switch things up the easier the information is to remember. We are in the middle of finals as of now, therefore I have many new studying habits fresh on my mind. Make flashcards. I think it helps to not see information in the same order every time. It ensures you actually know the material rather than just the order of answers. Utilize quizlet. Not only the flashcards, quizlet has many great ways to study and even games to play to make it painless! Make a song. As corny and dumb as it sounds creating some sort of pneumonic device is the best way remember a key phrase or equation during a test. If it is a math test unfortunately there is not a lot you can do to study other than just reworking some examples. Last but not least take good notes and go through them before the test. Notes are only as good as you make them, taking good notes puts you in the best position possible come test time.
