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

Preparing for tests has always been a big part of my daily life. When I am studying for any test I use a wide variety of strategies that have proven successful for me. The first step I always take when learning something new is trying to retain the information the first time I am introduced to it. In doing this I am able to interpret what I am learning while I am retaining the information. Next, I thoroughly study the information daily in preparation for a test or exam. I do this by learning background information and details which helps me make connections to the real world. These study habits have proven effective for me and my high grade point average is a reflection of that.
