Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
Aside from what I do in class to prepare for a test, I do use a few strategies that have proved useful to me over the many years. Depending on what kind of exam I will be taking, I make practice problems that are similar to the ones we do in class. After making them I proceed to do all different problems that I had made so I get an idea of what I will see on the test. On calculus and physics tests, I like to write down models and make sure I know them really well so If i get stuck on a certain problem I can rely on the model to maybe help me along in my thinking. This is one of my favorite ways to prepare, because it works most of the time for me. It is like laying out a tool which I can use how I need to solve the problem I am currently on. Using these methods have allowed me to succeed in every class that I have taken.
