Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
The most important part of my test preparation process is to go to bed early the night before the test and eat a nutrient rich and balanced breakfast. Personally, when I do not get enough sleep I become incredibly unfocused and forgetful, thus causing me to panic on my test. Also, by going into a test with an empty stomach, the constant stomach growl will cause you to lose your train of thought.
Furthermore, I am a very visual learner, there is something about seeing a picture instead of a bunch words just resonates better with me. Therefore when I’m studying I convert all the definitions and words in my notes to pictures and diagrams so I can get a better grasp of what is at hand.
To conclude, not all study methods or test preparation skills work for everyone, but these are what work for me and have showed clear improvement in my test scores.
