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

The way that I prepare for exams is by first reviewing the information being tested, then I practice with a friend. Finally, I do jumping jacks or squats while one of my parents quiz me on the topic. I believe that this process works for me because initially, I need quiet time to make sense of the material. I then practice with a friend who is going to take the same test that I am because that is a way for us to support each other in a relaxed setting. Finally, by allowing myself to be quizzed by my parents it puts the pressure on, similar to what a test might feel like. I do jumping jacks or squats because I have found that those activities help to relax me and I remember better as I move. That is my process.
