Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
This technique can apply to handwritten notes on paper as well as notes done on a laptop. In fact, both of these mediums could be used together, such as writing the original on a computer program and then transferring those notes to paper, which could be helpful because the computer allows you to change documents without wasting extra paper.
This brings me to another technique that I use all the time to help me remember information for tests and exams. After I have written my notes the way I want them, I quiz myself on that material (or get someone else to quiz me if I can) until I have everything memorized and am able to explain the concepts and connect them together. The best part about these two techniques is that they work for every class I have this year. Some classes are more abstract which can make it difficult to keep detailed notes, but this technique is effective nonetheless. On top of all this, I have noticed that it helps other students as well. Some of my classmates ask me for help, and all I have to do is use my notes to quiz them on the topics they may not understand, and then they are ready to take their tests.
