Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
I’m the type of person that struggles to seek help from instructors, and I think that YouTube can be a really valuable tool, so long as it doesn't become a distraction. For example, I was taking a Statistics course a year ago, and for concepts I didn’t understand, I would search for videos that gave me detailed instructions on that concept. The nice thing about YouTube is that you can re-watch directions you may have missed or need extra work on, and you can continue watching until you understand it, whereas you might not necessarily receive that type of help in the classroom. It’s important to try to apply what you learn by watching these videos or doing other research before you take a test, therefore if you still do not understand the material you can then ask for help from the teacher or a peer.
On the day of a test, the most important thing is having the confidence that you are adequately prepared for it. If you’ve studied hard, and you know the material, you shouldn’t have any stress.
