How to Practice Your Presentation One thing "great communicators" do have in common is a deep respect for rehearsal. To do well  in your presentation, it is imperative that you spend time practicing it before coming to class. As you prepare and practice your presentation 1. Read through your beginning outline concentrating on your main points. Try to commit them  to memory.  2. Read it again, only this time add the supporting material. Make sure your outline is making  sense to your. Concentrate on how the ideas fit together. Also look for words that "sound  funny" and Stick to words you use everyday. 3. Next, begin using less of your notes, talk through the presentation as best as you can. Don't  worry if you mess up - keep going until you finish. 4. Try it again standing and talking to an imaginary audience or mirror. Add gestures to  enhance your delivery. 5. Figure out the parts where you stumbled a bit and think about where they fit into the  presentation and why they are important. Try again. 6. When you feel comfortable that you know the material, convert the main points to short key  words and phrases and put them on your note card(s).
