Final Exam Study Tips

After a longgggg semester, it's finally final exams week here at Georgia Tech! I think most people are anxious, nervous, stressed, but mainly excited that the school year is almost over. Here are some of my favorite studying tips for final exams -- good luck, good luck!! <3


Study with others - This only goes for people with enough social self control to be around others when there's work to be done. But, I appreciate sitting at a table with a friend while doing work - it makes me happier, it makes me feel more obligated to study and it's nice to know someone is in the same boat.

Take breaks - Taking short breaks is a great way to reward yourself for getting work done/learning information and it helps keep your brain from getting exhausted too quickly.

Eat and sleep - Seems obvious, but I sometimes put eating and sleeping on the back burner during hectic times of the year. Pack snacks for studying and build in some naps!

Calm Environment -  Good lighting, not many distractions, an open work space, no background noise - all help when learning and remembering lots of information!

Listen to music - Listening to classic music while studying doesn't really work for me, but I love listening to my favorite artists just to stay energized, interested and awake while I'm studying.

Practice tests - Before your exam, do a practice version of the exam to prepare! I sometimes make my own exam with possible questions or have a friend quiz me over the test information. All of these get your mind prepared for an exam and calm your nerves.

  2. Agreed - I'm huge on pacing yourself! I mean, I've used a kitchen timer since elementary school days to keep myself on track and it's a pretty effective method for me! Great post :D
