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

To prepare for a test, I use flash cards and Quizlet. Both of these methods help me learn the material and retain it not only for test, but for life. I also have a color coding system for when I use actual flash cards. A pink mark on a card means I have it, yellow marks mean that I need more practice, and orange means that I really need to work on that material. Moreover, I always review the material that I learned in class that day whenever I am doing my nightly studying. This method helps reinforce what we learned in class, and ultimately is one of the big reasons I made a 4.0 my first semester of college.
I have always made good grades, and I knew that going into that I was going to have to change my study habits. When I discovered these small things, my grades not only stay at an A average but my grades actually got higher. I will always use these study methods because they work for me, and they have worked for multiple of my friends that I recommended them to.
