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

When prepping for a test I have a specific routine that I try to do. This routine consists of starting my studying a week or more before the test, and depending on the importance and difficulty of the test I will study anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. I do not like to study for more than 2 hours at a time because at that point I feel like I am applying too much pressure on myself. Every night for about a week I will study for that test, I am usually looking at a study guide. Once I have completed that study guide I will either ask my teacher for more questions like the ones on the test or I will find them myself online. I then study those questions to get some extra practice in. The night before the test I make sure to drink a sufficient amount of water and get to bed at a decent hour. The morning of the test I have my normal breakfast, because I do not want to change anything, from there I look over my study notes one last time, and I try my best.
