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

Preparing for tests is always hard to decide on, because it is different for every class. There is one test preparation practice I do for every class and that is making sure I review for a couple of nights instead of just all in one night. If it is a class like math I go back through class notes and do those practice problems, then I will either look up practice problems online or do some in the textbook. but most importantly I make sure I know formulas and the steps that need to be taken for each problem. This makes me aware of the specific topics I need to review more. If it is for a subject like science or history, creating flashcards of the important ideas and vocabulary help me the most. This way I can memorize the important ideas and get a good grasp of the big picture and the definitions that will help me out the most.
