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

The best ways that a person can remember course material is by making associations of what they are learning to how it can be applied to their own life. As a health major, I do not have the luxury for repetition until the information is drilled into my head. For example, I remember how a medication diffuses from an area of high concentration to a low concentration by connecting that concept to putting a dye in water and the dye will disperse. In addition, I make up my own examples. Enough sleep is important to retain the information I learn, therefore, I would never do an all-nighter regardless of how much study material I have to learn. Taking a short break every hour and studying a small amount of information is much more effective than cramming. I also have one day which I relax so I would not get overwhelmed with the workload.
