Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
From there I further break the information that I have gathered into main ideas and categories so that I can see how certain pieces of information relate to one another and how they all fit within what might be on the test. Once again writing them down again to put the pieces together helps me to remember them. I review these for maybe a couple hours spread over the next few days. Then when the test or assignment is a couple days away I move to the final step of the process.
I create flashcards for the main ideas, how all of the information relates to each other, and the smaller pieces of information that I feel might be on the test. Then I mix up the cards keeping track of how many that I get correct and give myself percentages that I would have gotten if that round of test questions was the actual test. I do this over and over until I have gotten one hundred percent two times in a row. Then I do this for the the three or four days before the test every night making sure that I have all of the information trapped in my permanent memory. Finally one hour before I class I run through the flash cards one more time before going in and taking the test. During the test having written the information down three separate times comes in handy.
