Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
There are many ways someone could approach it , like procrastination. Some of the biggest procrastinators are the most smartest people around you. I cannot procrastinate, I like for everything to be a process; and this process goes in this order. They day that your instructor gives you the date for the test , that’s the day the preparation begins. I was involved in sports while I was in high school , so we had this study hall after school for the members on the team. During that time I would review my work that I had done in that class.
Before looking at my notes, I would make sure I ate something prior because it’s all about having the energy. You don’t expect to go out and play basketball on a empty stomach, so why should you try and study on an empty stomach. After I eat I would review my work for the whole time we are in there and luckily my coach was very smart, I could always ask him for help when I needed it. After study hall, the next time I had a chance to study was when I would get home from practice. I would get home around 7pm, and the I would start studying around 9pm. I would continue studying until around 10pm.
Almost every single day after I would learn something new about the subject, things the instructor wouldn’t even mention in class. Preparing for a test is not easy, you could lose focus during the process and not have the energy to continue. I cannot prepare for a test by myself. I have to have my coaches, peers, and instructors guiding me through, making sure my head is in the right place.
