Get together everything you need to study: notes, syllabus, class readings, quizzes, tests, and homework.
• Ask yourself questions about the material while you are reviewing. This helps you remember more than just rereading. Suggested questions to consider: How does this information fit in with other class material? What are the main points of what I just read? Why did this event happen? What would happen if one event or fact was different?
• When working in groups, don’t get distracted or off-topic. Everyone’s time is important.
Take care of yourself
• Get some sleep! Cramming may help you review more material, but it doesn’t make up for sleepiness during the time you should be most alert—during your exams!
• Eat regularly-- now is not the time to forget meals. A mix of protein, carbs, and good fat will keep you fueled and keep your mind off your stomach while you work.
