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

I find that the best way to study for a test is to simply relax and not overdo it. Many people will burn themselves out by studying for hours and hours, starting to burn themselves out before the test even begins. The best strategy for me is to study for at most an hour starting a couple days before the test, then relax and think of it as any other assignment. Using this I can approach the test calm and collected, allowing me to really focus on the topic at hand.
