Finally, here are some tips as you prepare for finals week:

  • Get a good night’s sleep and eat a high protein breakfast.
  • Don’t study right before the test. Concentrate on being calm
    and mentally accessing the information that you have already studied.
  • Get to the test a little early.
  • Sit as close as possible to the area where you first learned the information in class.
  • When you first get your exam, skim through the entire exam and mark off questions you know you can answer or questions that you don’t know right off the bat.
  • Be sure to pace yourself to make sure that you finish on time.
  • Make a decision to ignore students who finish the test before you.
  • Use any extra time you have to double check your answers, make sure you’ve followed all directions and haven’t skipped any answers.
  • Attend review sessions or meet with a tutor to review topics for the exam and discuss strategies to approach test questions.
  • Visit the Tutoring Center for a comprehensive list of review sessions as well as for a listing of tutor hours for finals week.
