3 More Tips to Feel Ready for Midterm Exams

studying photoBig exams can seem overwhelming, but there’s plenty you can do to get ready.

Here are three more tips (I posted the first three here); pick and choose or try them all!

  • Tackle the easy stuff first. Cover the material you know pretty well and then cross it off your list. Start by going through your old tests and quizzes and reworking all the easy problems. This will give you a sense of accomplishment and progress, which will lift your spirits.
  • Let parents help. During stressful times, support from other people can be invaluable. Let your parents remind you to study every day, allow them to clear the family calendar of non-academic events, and let them quiz you, bring you tea or just keep you company.
  • Study alone, then with pals. Don’t arrive at a group study session unprepared and clueless. Study alone first so you come equipped with a list of questions plus some knowledge to contribute.
