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

Test preparations come and go with many different attempts at what works for me. In college you can see when you have test and exams. I look at the syllabus and read when it is, some can even tell you what the contents of the exam will be. When I know this, I will then look at the content before hand and start looking at things that I may to know. When I learn something that I did not know I will write it down in Cornell note taking style, then I listen to the lecture of class and Start making connections and making my notes to relate to the topic of the lecture. I make sure to balance studying for multiple test so that I can have and equal opportunity to pass each of them. A week before the test I will make sure I read the notes, look at the lecture objectives, answers the objectives and ask the question "What does this do?, how does this relate to the objective goals?, and what is this?". when I can answer all of those questions and the objective questions I know that I am ready to take the test. The day before, I know not to cram so I make the time to just relax and go over brief points on the lectures to remind my brain of what I studied. That Is the way I practice the exams and how I can retain the information.
