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

For the SAT my junior year, I purchased a study preparation book that I used 3 times a week to help prepare me for the timed element of taking the SAT. The best way to do well on a test is by practicing questions from the test itself. This is why I also used Khan Academy's SAT preparation course online. I did many practice exams over my breaks from school and each time I felt more comfortable and more accurately answered the questions. Taking these practice exams worked best for me because I have an hard time with taking time limited test, for students who need help preparing for a test and have and hard time getting rid of the anxiousness of taking an test, I would recommend for them to do a couple practice exams beforehand.
