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

The main strategy that I use for test preparation is creating what I call my "condensed notes". I go through all my book notes and notes I took in class and I pick out definitions and points that I have a hard time remembering. I write them down on a sheet of notebook paper and create a sort of study guide for myself that contains important definitionss, formulas, and ideas. The process of making the study guide helps me to review all my notes and recall things I had forgotten, and having a study guide to look at helps because it is convenient to reference. It also helps because if all the important information is in one place I can look at it for extended periods of time, which makes it easier to visualize if I forget something during the test.
