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

My high school allows us to use our phones during class, so to start preparing for tests I will take pictures of diagrams and drawings on the board, and I will save them in separate folders in my photo app so that I am able to look back at them while reviewing for the test. I also like to color code my notes because I noticed that the colors help me organize and remember information more effectively. I will underline important words and highlight things my teacher has mentioned multiple times. When it comes to studying I find flashcards the most effective method to review material. The method of writing the information down helps me review, and then flipping through them while studying material helps me understand concepts.
