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

It’s very important to know how to prepare yourself for test. Test determine how much information you retained from the class. These can be deciding scores for most students. This puts a lot of pressure on students who have to take this test. So, for me the best way I prepare for a test is my first gathering all the information I need from the class. This is usually notes or power points from lectures. I begin studying about four days before test. Next I grab some friends from the classroom since a social environment helps in retaining knowledge. It’s always best to study in intervals, for example, study for 30 minutes then take a five-minute break. I tend to reward myself after studying to keep a positive mindset. No I tried to stay away from unhealthy foods as they can interrupt the learning process. In the day before the test, I make sure I get a good amount of sleep as well as a healthy meal before bed. Finally on the day of the test I wake up around 6 AM or at least two hours before the test and review one final time. With this process the pressure of test should be release extensionally. Tess does not have to be as hard as society makes it, it can all be changed by the way you prepare yourself in any adversity there is.
