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

When preparing for an exam, repetition is key for me. During class, even if handouts of notes are distributed, I write my notes down in my spiral anyway. When it comes time to study, I will type up all my notes on a Word document, write down all the key words or phrases, or both. I also like to use Quizlet when preparing for exams that are definition-heavy. These strategies are most effective for me because I develop a muscle memory for recalling definitions and ideas.
