Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
Envisioning a creative and life-like story about monotonous lists of facts helps me remember the facts significantly better. After all, us humans can recall interesting memories about people much better than we can recall the complicated ideas covered in higher level tests. With more efficient and accurate recall of facts, I have been able to perform very well on the majority of tests that require such recall. In addition to developing stories about the more complex tested knowledge, I also utilize simple, visual mnemonic cues to quickly remember certain facts. For example, when studying the constitutional amendments, I will memorize the 21st amendment (repealing the ban on alcohol) as a 21-year-old stepping into a bar for the first time to legally drink alcohol. Converting tested facts into stories and visual cues has elevated my test preparation by significantly improving recall during the test.
