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

My strategy when it comes to assessments is defeating the monster of procrastination.
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.
