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

When I know I am going to take a test that is a big part of my grade, I freak out for a little until I tell myself that I got this and understand the material. I start with flashcards because I love flashcards. I started to use them because my teacher told me to try it out and I thought it wasn't going to work because I usually like to work hands on. Once I started I couldn't stop. I would make flashcards for everything and I would read what the teacher gave us and I was getting good grades. I believe flashcards worked for me because because I would be the one writing down the things I need to remember and just keep going over and over it. I wouldn't sleep late because I know that if I sleep late, I wake up really tired. Flashcards is the only thing that works for me and always will and will get me through college.
