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

My favorite test preparations include a variety of study techniques. I took a class a few years ago that taught me how to study based on how I learn. It has since helped me dramatically in learning and retaining what I read. I am a kinesthetic learner and I often find that written guides are best for me. I highlight and make notes, and usually snack while studying. I do have to admit that I also tend to be better at last minute cramming than long-term studying. I love colors, pictures, graphs, charts, and fill in the blank work sheets. The action of coloring in and writing out what something is helps a lot. I wish more online companies provided a breakdown of study content based on how you learn, as I think it would help people test better and make better grades.
