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

I always make sure I study before I take any test, but I feel like there’s other things that come into play when it comes to being prepared to take a test.
Studying is one of them, it obviously helps because if you study constantly the material will eventually stay in your brain and you won’t forget. There are also little things you can do to help you be a little more prepared when it comes to test taking. Some of the thing I like to do is get my mind right the night before. I know I’m taking a test and I must nail it. I get in that mindset were all that matters Is the test; I don’t focus on irrelevant things. You can’t approach a test and be worried about the wrong things. Another one is confidence; you always want to be confident in yourself. tell yourself in your head you can do it, believe in yourself. People may not realize it, but our brain is very powerful. If you put your mind to it and believe and tell yourself you can do it and go in there to test with the right attitude, confidence and mindset. You’ll see it pay off at the end.
These are some of the things I do that help me get prepared testing. Honestly, they’ve helped me a lot over the past few years. It’s the reason why I’ve passed all the test that I have, tell yourself you can do it, have that confidence within you.
