Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
This way of studying also means I have some flexibility with what I am reviewing. If a teacher has already stated that a specific topic may not be included on a test, I can make a mental note and only go over the basics of that subject. With this method, I make sure I can study effectively based on the class requirements.
When I study using this method, I also find that I do not “burn out” as much at the end of the study sessions. Sometimes, when reviewing all the notes I have taken, I find that I rush through the last topics to get done on time. This causes me to misremember facts that may be essential for a particular class. By chopping the course up and studying hard on the major topics that I miss, I tend to study less while obtaining more information that will potentially boost my grade.
