You can also team up with your peers by finding some test prep running buddies (the "running buddies" bit is a metaphor—no tennis shoes required). By identifying and agreeing to collaborate with friends who share your ambition, dedication, and perspective, you can feel a little less alone in the preparation process, and you might even accelerate your progress.
How can you work with friends on your test prep?
Let me be clear: When including peers in your support system, you must be discerning.
The friend with whom you love joking but who doesn’t seem invested in test prep or college? Not your running buddy.
The person who brags about how well they are doing but withholds constructive advice? Not your running buddy.
The person who constantly complains about how awful test prep is? Not your running buddy.
Most of your classmates will not be your test prep running buddies. In fact, if you find yourself engaged in discussions with more than four friends about test prep on a consistent basis, chances are you need to stop talking about test prep. (For real though.)
