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

Of course, the foundation to a perfect study plan is the notes that you take in class. This is exactly where my process begins. As I listen to my teacher's lectures, I write down all of the topics and related information that is important to the lesson. Next, I re-write the notes that I take in class and organize, color code, and add drawings where I believe they could help. When a test or quiz is approaching, I normally take my notes and write down on flashcards what I need help remembering. If I do not have much time, I will enter the topics into Quizlet and study using the tools available on that website. These techniques are particularly helpful to me because I have found that repetition is really the only strategy that works for me.
