Exams Week!

It's baaaaaack. The week we've all been dreading: Hell Finals Week. I don't know about you, but this week creeped up on me so fast. I have three exams tomorrow and I'm NOT looking forward t it. However, once I finish my Theology exam on Thursday night, I'm packing my bags and boarding a plane Friday morning to go back to the South for a beautiful six weeks. I have so many things planned for when I go home, but first I really need to focus on my exams and hopefully raising my GPA! Here are some tips I came up with for studying:

  1. Make a to-do list. As cheesy as this sounds, its a pretty efficient way of getting work done.
  2. Do things in a mannerly way. Don’t cram studying all in to one day, or stay up until two in the morning. There’s no way you’re going to really understand everything or have the motivation to do so. Taking breaks can also help to. Reward yourself for working hard!
  3. SLEEP. Getting a good night’s sleep will definitely make a difference. If you go into an exam with a full night’s sleep, it will have much more of an effect than if you walked in groggy.
  4. Distance Yourself from Distractions. Try to get away from people such as boyfriends/girlfriends, loud friends, and just distractions in general like Facebook or Tumblr(or in mot of . Go study in a study room or a library. Trust me, it will make all the difference. If you’re in a loud place or a dorm room you will get no work done.
  5. Notecards. I know for me, notecards has always been a good studying technique. It’s a source for memorizing terms, or just anything really. Color coding your notecards also help to. It helps you memorize faster, because it triggers the brain faster (Thank you freshmen year Psych for teaching me that).

Good luck on your finals! The next time I post, I'll be in Georgia :)
