7 Study Tips to Ace Your Finals  Tuesday, April 18, 2017


  1. Keep your mind and body alert -  sleep, exercise and nutrition are important to optimal academic performance.
  2. Get organized – find all notes, handouts, outside readings, study guides and texts.  Put these in chronological order.  It will make review easier.
  3. Create an exam study plan.  Set reasonable goals – it may not be possible to cover a course in one night.  Learning material in smaller bites will be more effective and far less stressful than cramming a few days before.
  4. Divide and conquer – by taking the chapters, sections, notes, outside readings, etc. and divide them by the days left to prepare for the exam.
  5. Plan for essay questions – create a working outline for the topics which will be included on the exam.  Highlight the key elements.  Most discussion questions will have 2-3 parts to answer.  Decide what the main points could be and create paragraphs to support your answer.  Writing these down is a great way to study and enhances recall.
  6. Attend review sessions – even if you feel you have the information down cold.  Attending review sessions may further clarify your understanding of the material.
  7. Take deep breathes.  Use visualization.  Visualize taking the test, know the material, answering the questions and doing well.

Rock Chalk Good Luck!
