It’s finals time. Some students love this time of year (school is almost over) and some dread it. These year end, culminating exams are often intimidating and overwhelming for students. The key is preparation and being ready to take the test.
The first step is to keep up with your classes all along. Cramming is never a best option. So if you have planned ahead and kept up with your work then you are in a much better situation to begin with.
There are many study techniques in Maximum Education, but one area covers how to prepare for finals (or any larger summary exam like midterms etc). One key is to organize your information in a way that simplifies the process and at the same time organizes material in a way that makes it easier for you to learn / review it.
Here are some basic suggestions on how you can organize your information. There are many more in Maximum Education.
Think about what information the teacher has given you about the test:
– How long is the test?
– How many questions are there going to be?
– What is going to be stressed on the test?
– Are there any special cases that you have to be concerned about?
– Have you been given an essay question ahead of time?
– Do you know what types of math problems are going to be asked?
– Are there usually multiple choice questions about important dates in history?
I would love your feedback. What is your FAVORITE study trick or finals prep idea.
