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

My study habits begin in the classroom with my type of learning. i like to associate what I'm learning to something that is relevant to me in my life. that way when it comes time to study by association I can not just memorize what the teacher is presenting but to actually learn it long term. Because of this I can apply my knowledge to the real world and learn it long term. My types of association are about what I see on a daily basis, like how the formations of birds flying are aerodynamic and can relate that to geometry. When I was taking Chemistry at the college the class and tests were extremely difficult. It wasn't until we would do the labs that the random formulas and numbers would make sense. Therefore after a lab I would try to apply it as much as possible to real life. i will study for a test at least a week in advance of the test and review my notes after school so the information can be fresh in my mind. this complex study patters and practices are why I've been successful in my academics for so long.
