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

One method of studying that is a bit old school that always worked for me was writing down words repeatedly. Memorizing information by writing it down help me because I get to learn how to do things first handed. Taking good nice and neat notes is key as well when writing down study material. Another method of test preparation that I feel works best for me are pictures. I like to relate what content I'm preparing for to pictures and everyday life. Another studying habit is to grab a study buddy. Going back and forth bouncing ideas off of each other is helpful because it's nice to have someone who understands what you are trying to prepare for. I also find that paired studying can be really helpful when trying to focus or concentrate. Some subjects can be quite boring but having another person can help bring the fun out of it and actually make studying fun.
