Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
And then I figured it out. Aside from my classes, I set times throughout my day where I would practice different study skills. In the morning was my time to practice an auditory study method. I would spend my time getting ready for the day while listening to an audio version I had recorded of myself reciting notes I had taken in class on the current course material. During lunch, I practiced a visual study method and would review flash cards I had created with terminology and diagrams. When my roommate would tolerate it, I would teach her about the subject I was studying. This form of study allowed me to think out loud and work through the problem/topic of interest. When she had questions, I would explain them to her in a new way and when I didn’t know the answer it would allow me to further research and educated myself. There are four primary types of learners: auditory, visual, reading/writing, and kinesthetic. I believe when you force yourself to study in a way that isn’t “your learning style” it allows you to become a well-rounded, critical thinker and student.
