Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
For those classes we go to college for, we may sometimes lean on cramming for tests, but personally, I’d rather not. Because I love the subject and class, I equally put more effort into studying. Rather than study for a test that I know is coming up, I continually study through volitional note taking. By taking notes, you have to physically write the information out, and muscle memory aligns with regular memory. Not only that, you have to process and think about what to write, therefore pounding the information into your brain in a concise manner. By continually taking notes on every chapter or lecture, along with making study guides, that information builds into knowledge, and before you know it, you know it!
