Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
I first re-read my notes, make sure there is nothing I missed, and have all the correct information. After especially for math or science, I re-work problems from class to refresh my brain. This helps me make sure I remember everything from the beginning of the unit to the end of the unit. Then, I ask my friend if I can explain to them what I learn in that class. This makes it feel like a conversation and helps me make sure I completely understand the concept. If I have a brain fart or hiccup I know I need to go back and review that part. Talking to someone about what you learn is the best way to study. You are not only saying it aloud but you hearing what you say which helps stick to the brain better. This method does not work for everyone but certainly works for me because I have a 4.9 GPA and still able to do extracurricular activities.
