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

To prep for test it works best for me when I take online multiple choice test that have the content I need and give me the right answer at the end. This is especially helpful for courses such as Psychology or Economics. I go on websites such as Quizlet and albert.io. Quizlet is helpful because you get to put the content into different forms of test questions. For example, you can do fill in the blank, matching, multiple choice, and even true or false questions. Albert.io, on the other hand, splits content into sections and after each question it gives you the right answer as well as explanations as to why the right answer is right and why the wrong answers are wrong. Albert.io prepares you for things you may not know and provides you with an explanation that can help you learn it which is why it is better for things like AP tests. I also use Albert.io when prepping for a math test. It is extremely helpful for my Calculus class. As stating before not only does it give you the right answer, it shows you the steps that they took to get to the right answer. Furthermore, with math subjects I like to watch videos such as those that are on Khan Academy. Khan Academy does a great job of explaining as well as showing how to work out different math problems. They also work through problems in their video to give a better understanding. But sometimes it is better to prep for test with friends. For test in a subject such as history where the content does not change. It works best for me to prep with online educational games such as Kahoot. Kahoot is a game played against others where you have content and whoever picks the right answer first get the most points. The person that is at the top of the scoreboard at the end of the game win. You can even create your own Kahoot game with your own content. With that being said, most of the time, I use online resources to prep for test. I rarely go to someone for help or try to go over my notes to look over the material.
