It’s that time of year where all of your hard work and effort throughout the semester are put to the test! This year, Study Day is Wednesday, December 7th with final exams beginning on December 8th.
Some study tips include:
- Time Management: Don’t try to cram all of the information in at once. Space it out!
- Focus: It can be hard to study when there are several distractions. Do your best to avoid them! If social media distracts you, put the phone out of sight. If noise is distracting, move your study spot to a quiet place.
- Get Sleep: Pulling an all-nighter may sound great for reading through your classwork, but a lack of sleep does not allow your brain to retain information as efficiently. Lack of sleep also decreases your alertness and cognitive abilities. Even a short nap or two during the day can be beneficial.
- Take Breaks: Taking breaks allows for your brain to process the information you just learned. Studying for a long period of time results in your brain only being able to process what you learned in the beginning and end of your study time.
