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

One of the main techniques I use to study for exams is utilizing past exam questions or practice problems. Old exams, ideally from the same teacher or professor, allows me to see how they structure their questions. One of the hardest things that I have come across in exams is how the professor forms and words each question. By looking at their past exams, I feel more prepared when taking my exam.
Practice problems are also key in preparing for tests. I am a kinesthetic learner so the best way for me to learn material and study for exams is a hands on approach. For me, that happens to be through the repetition of content in the form of practice questions. By continuously seeing the information in different styles and forms of questions, I am able to better understand and remember it. Many exams apply the content discussed in class so seeing different problems is best in preparing for exams.
