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

I believe that my test preparation practices are great and effective. What I generally do at first is just quickly go over the chapter that will be tested the day I first learn it. Then when the test is a week away, I start to carefully read the full chapter and separated within five days. This way I don’t get overworked, and on the last two days, I start going over quizzes that either available in the book or just online ones. This is just one of the methods that I use to prepare for a test. The technique I generally do most of the time is study through relief over time. What I mean by this is I would read the chapter or practice for a while but after a certain amount of time passes, depending on the subject it will vary, I would stop a watch something. I watch either a funny YouTube video or a comedy show on Netflix, usually starting Kevin Kart or Dave Chappelle, and after they finish one or two jokes I go back to studying or practicing the material. The reason I do this is, so I feel happy and awake while I study as I usually study late at night. This also helps me remember the material more as I start liking more the concepts, I am studying to the point I research certain topics and get off track. This is how I prepare for a test, and so far it has worked for me as I not only learn the material but also enjoy it too.
