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

Whenever I have a test I make sure I set a reminder to study. Whether that be in my planner or my phone. If I have homework for other classes, I do that work and save studying for the test last. I do this in order for the test to be the freshest material on my mind. I find a quiet place to sit and begin to look over any bellringers or handouts. I choose to do this first because most of the time 80 percent of the test includes concepts mentioned on those materials. Next, I look over any notes. I leave this for last because it will take the longest. I highlight anything that has been repeated multiple times AND anything that has not been mentioned frequently. I create some type of game, usually Quizlet, in order for me to learn the material without getting bored. On the day of the test, I refer back to the Quizlet I created and consequently am very prepared for my test.
