Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
While every good test taker knows the three basic rules, there a few tips to help ensure you are prepared for a test. Sit down with a friend or loved one attempt to teach them what material is on the test. If you find yourself unable to properly explain the concept, then take note of this and review it in a study session. I used this frequently in math or foreign language classes as this asserts what I need to study and solidifies what I already know.
If you experience test anxiety such as myself. Do not speak negatively with your friends. Engage in positive behavior and support one another. Remember, you are all in this together having a positive support group to cheer you on is one way to relive your stress and boost your confidence.
Overall, follow the three basic rules review early, get a good night's sleep, and arrive early before the test begins. Meanwhile, try to teach a friend or loved one material covered on the test, this a great way to find out what needs review and what you know. Lastly, everyone gets nervous for a test, but having a positive support group can boost your confidence and relieve the butterflies in your stomach.
