    Stressed About Your Tests? Review These Steps to Help During Final Exams

    Anna Rumsey, Resident Consultant

    Before panic sets in that final exams are approaching. Take a DEEP breath. The Student Academic Success Center is a great resource for students when it comes to studying, beating the stress, and taking a test successfully. They have events that you can attend for tips on how to deal with exam week. Academic Success Workshop: A Final Exam Plan for Low Stress and High Success Monday, April 7, 2014 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. Kirkof Center >> Room 2263 OR Wednesday April 9, 2014 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. North C >> Room 142 Here is some solid advice from the SASC about what you can do to prepare for an exam:

    Keep up with the day to work of the course:  Do the reading – before the

    class. At least skim headings and read main topics

     Take good notes in class. Fill in missing information, clarify questions and identify examples as soon as possible after the lecture.

     Go to study groups and tutoring

     Review material within 24 hours and continue to review often

     Make flashcards, re-write/type notes, discuss what you are learning out loud

    Find out about the test  What type of test? Multiple

    choice? Essay? What material will be covered?

     What skills will you need? (memorizing facts, problem solving, application, interpreta- tion?)

     How much is the test worth to your grade? The more it is worth, the more time and energy you need to give in preparing for it.

    Studying for the test  Start early – 7 days before the

    test. Don’t wait until you get a study guide!

     Break material into sections and plan study time for each section.

     Make practice tests or do practice problems

     Work to understand the material not just memorize it.

    Needing more help than this? The SASC has a lot of resources on their website including note-taking, memory, time management and more! Visit and visit the “Learning Skills Service” tab.
