Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
For actually relearning the information, a study strategy I like to use is making a mini “poster” on some cardstock with information that I need to know. I reorganize the information into different groups and use different colors for each group to help me remember them. This strategy is great for visual learners, and if you like art or graphic design like me, it can help make studying more enjoyable. Another thing I like to do is to incorporate the information I need to know into a little story. It doesn’t have to make sense, and the weirder, the better because weirder is more memorable. These techniques have really helped me to study for AP exams, finals, test and quizzes, but the main thing I recommend is to figure out the type of learner that you are (visual, auditory, or kinesthetic) and to tailor you studying to that.
