Top 10 Final Exam TIPS

1. Just get started. Don’t wait until you feel like studying.

2. Predict possible questions. Review old tests, quizzes & study guides

3. Stay healthy. Get some sleep and avoid caffeine. Seriously, your brain with thank you.

4. Draw it. Create tables, diagrams or pictures to represent and organize the information.

5. Explain it aloud. Ask a SSS tutor if you can explain the material to them. Using your own words helps you assess your comprehension, which ultimately aids your memory.

6. Study in a distraction-reduced environment. Turn off your cell phone & TV.

7. Quiz yourself. Cover up your notes and try to explain them. Create flashcards. If you find yourself struggling to remember, try different techniques to learn the material.

8. Form a study group and develop a practice test together.

9. Manage your anxiety. By listen to calming music, stretching or breathing deeply, you can avoid stress and release negative thoughts.

10. Finally, examine your beliefs about learning. It does not happen quickly and intelligence is not fixed. Stay positive and persist, believing that talent can be developed. You can learn material by working hard, seeking help and using effective strategies.
