Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.
My test strategies are not limited to a single way of studying, but rather the emphasis I place on time management and discipline. Within a week of a test, I start off by rewriting my notes, color coding if needed, and drawing diagrams and pictures that help me better understand the concept. Next, I will do a brief reading of the notes to gather as much information on the lesson as I can. After I read, I will tend to make a flash cards full of questions not only on the study guide, but also from external sources and the text book. I will then take the next day or two to focus primarily on the questions that I have formulated. Lastly, after I show an understanding of the questions and my notes, I will do a final reading of my textbook to fill any of the gaps I might have unknowingly missed. These methods work for me because, like most students, I tend to get overwhelmed as exam dates approach. Allowing my brain to comprehend topics and concepts without a time constraint is a huge benefit which will allow one to fully understand their lessons and overall make great grades on each and everyone of their assignments.
