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

Preparing for tests is very important to me, as I always wish to do my best on a test. I always make sure to start preparing for the test ahead of time, I don't do my best when I procrastinate and cram the night before. I also make sure to set a specific time aside every day (or as much as needed) to study so that I feel confident and prepared for the test. Talking with my teachers or someone who is well educated on the test I am about to take also helps a lot. Getting tips and help from knowledgeable people is a great way to get better at the topic you're studying. One of the best things for me to do is prepare good studying materials. Whether it is an outline, study guide, quizlet, flash carts, or any other type of studying material, I always make sure to have one and go over it multiple times. Explaining what I am studying in a teaching way to a family member is also a very good way to help me remember what I am studying. These are all of the things that help me to do well on a test. If I use all of these testing preparation practices, then I am bound to do well on my test!
