Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
The great test preparation that I found worked for me is the following writing out all my tests coming up. As they approach I start studying for them one to two weeks in advance. I would do a fifty-minute study session and then a ten-minute break. I then repeat this two to three times or until I feel like I can't study anymore. I think the pattern of studying then taking a break makes my brain believe that if I study then I will be rewarded for studying and it made studying more enjoyable rather than it feeling like it was just a task. It's a practice that I wish i knew long ago because it's been so beneficial to me, but I'm happy I learned it now because it has helped me tremendously for my math and science courses.
