By speaking in front of mirror
Speaking in front of a mirror as suggested by most of the people is considered as one of the best ways for a long time. But it has its drawbacks too. While speaking in front of a mirror either you speak or analyze. It is very difficult to do both simultaneously. When you speak your focus should be on speaking not finding mistakes, if you try to find mistakes you lose focus and your self interview gone wrong. And hence you will not get a clear picture and find the same mistake again and again, which may be you have already corrected. But still it is good for increasing confidence.
By Video Recording on your phone/tablets/laptop
Self Video recordings are good and much better than speaking in front of a mirror here while recording you only focus on speaking not on mistakes because you can analyze your interviews later. But Its main drawback is lack of context. So if you are recording for half an hour and you are answering 5 to 6 questions, while you speak you forgot what other questions are. And after this self interview while analyzing you may not remember what question you are answering. But it is much better than self mirror practicing and a good tool for helping in an interview.
By using any self interview app
Self interview apps are designed to overcome these issues while practicing interviews. First while recording you does not have to keep finding mistakes and just focus on your speaking. And while the self interview is going on you don't have to bother about what should be the next question. And while analyzing you know for which question you were answering. so you know the context.
There can be many more preparation tools, but self interview apps are one of useful tools to help you prepare for cracking interviews.
