Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
It is so tempting to do what the norm is, and wait a day or two before the exam to study. However, it is much easier for me to study a little every day. Every night, I plan out the next day. From waking up and working out to my leisure time before sleep, almost all hours are planned. As far as academics, I set aside specific time slots during the day. Each class is different, so each time slot is a different length. In the time slots, I do both homework and studying. I do cumulative reviews throughout each week. I forget content way too fast if I do not come back to it for weeks!
To conclude, my method of studying is spreading it across the entire semester. I have learned that doing so not only results in better grades, but also mental health.
