Tests are hard for me, and they are probably the most difficult thing about school for me, but I do my best on every one that I take. Sometimes tests don't work out the way I would like them to, but I never give up. I work so hard to find new ways to study, and trying these three new ways helped me so much. I will continue to use all three of these techniques to see if they will help me more in the future.
What's best for me?
After using all three of these techniques, I think they all work in different and powerful ways. The flashcards were easy to use at any time, and they helped me focus on my reading as I was making them. Quizlet was easy access because it is a "pre-made" website which means that you don't have to do any work to make anything. All you do is look up what you want to study for, and start studying once flashcards or any information you want/need shows up. The mind maps are more like the flashcards because I made them myself, and they help me focus on what I need to be studying. I think the best technique out of these three is the flashcards because repetition is one of the best things a student can do to study. None of these techniques are my favorite though because my test grades aren't showing that much of an improvement. My confidence is about the same because my tests aren't getting better, which is discouraging me a little bit. I just have to work really hard, find a new study technique that I love, and get my grades up. I believe in myself, and I think that if I can do that then I can do anything I set my mind to.
