You're going to succeed during finals week...here's how


Below you will find some general study tips gathered to help you succeed. Do not stress, just stay focused and keep your eye on your goals.

Sleep. At this moment you still have enough time to prepare for all of your finals. You have at least 6 days to study, not cram. Sleep will be one of the most important things for you over the next few days, as it will help you stay focused and stay on schedule.

Study in time intervals. It’s best for you to focus on material for 45-50 minutes, then take a 10-15 minute break to relax. That doesn’t necessarily mean getting on Facebook or Pinterest… we all know that’s a trap. Stretch out, grab a snack, or talk to friends for a few minutes. This will help you recharge.

Organize, organize your study materials, & organize your time. Break each class up into times that you will study that specific material and have your folder/binder of the material put together and ready.

Switch it up. Change your study locations so you don’t get bored or distracted.

Exercise and eat healthy. Just good habits to practice.

Quiz yourself or have others quiz you. Practice with past exams or having friends quiz you out loud. This will jog your memory in a different way than just reading notes over and over – which will help you to remember the material.

Talk with your professor. One semester I was struggling with the amount of material that would be covered on my final, so I took my study guide to my professor where she was able to help me weed out the useless information and focus on what would be important.

The more you prepare, the more likely you will be to succeed. However, if that didn’t help at all, consult these articles for more tips & tricks!
