📅 Tune in to the Academic Success Seminar  Survive Final Exams on Wednesday, Dec. 1. Learn how to set up your final exam study schedule and review the basics of active studying.

Ramp up your final exam study skills with these tips from the pros in Academic Coaching.

Review your learning objectives

Check your course outline for a learning objective refresh — they’re basically a road map for your course. Learning objectives can give you a good idea of where to focus your time and provide direction on what to study.

Prepare and organize your materials

Use your notes and study materials to make summary sheets, flashcards, diagrams or concept maps.

Test yourself

Use your flashcards, and fill-in-the-blank charts/diagrams, complete practice questions or work with a virtual study group to test yourself.

Explain your answers out loud — and repeat

You can try this by yourself or with others. It's a good way to focus your thoughts, get things straight in your head and highlight what you need to work on. And, don’t forget to repeat three to five times for maximum retention.

Take breaks while studying

Capitalize on how the brain processes information — study in short sessions and schedule breaks throughout. Try the Pomodoro (tomato) Technique: divide each hour of study into three 20-minute blocks and dedicate the last few minutes of each block to getting a drink, having a snack or stretching.

👉 You've worked hard, you know your stuff, now ace that test. Write exams like a pro with these tips.
