How do you improve your writing based off of revisions you have been given?

I have a writing/essay test coming up and I wanted to practice for it. I wrote a practice essay and sent it to an friend who is an English teacher to revise it. I got the revisions back however how is that suppose to help me do better on the test? What should I learn from the revisions I received?

You can gain a lot by asking a friend/tutor to sit with you as you yourself revise the essay and s/he shows you how to find the changes you would like to make in your writing. Become your own expert best revision expert.
