The most stressful time of the semester is here. Finals Week.
Finals week can become very overwhelming and painful for some students. It’s the time to focus and get test grades that reflect the hard work you’ve put in during the semester.
Before studying, think about which test matter the most. Some students are better in one subject than the other. Commit more time to the subject/topic in which you need more understanding.
Everyone studies differently, whether his or her habits or even environment. Study where you can focused and not distracted by anyone or anything. Light snacks and soft music sets a soft vibe while you study.
Knowing when to study and for how long depends how much time you want to put into it and how much you want to review at that time. Never over study to the point where everything because a gibberish. Flashcards are a great study method that you can carry with you.
The morning of the test do something positive to build up energy. Have a nice breakfast, no caffeine and no energy drinks. Look over your notes one last time and don’t pressure yourself during the test
