"What is important is to keep learning, to enjoy challenge, and to tolerate ambiguity.
In the end there are no certain answers."

  • We ofthen categorize ourselves as visual or auditory learners, or as being left-brained or right-brained thinkers. Don't worry about this so much. It is more important to figure out which study strategies work for you - and to use them - than to worry about where you lie on the learning spectrum.

  • This may seem obvious - and we can't say it ENOUGH, but . . . The best way to prepare for tests is to attend classes and PARTICIPATE! You will have already begun the process of reviewing and will know what to expect on the exam.

  • Remember quality over quantity. Rather than sticking to one subject and spending hours attempting to master it, you might try switching between a few related topics. It is less boring and you might just learn more!

  • The only thing worse than having a deadline is missing a deadline. Stay organized, cut down on procrastination and your work load will feel MUCH more manageable.
  • will help release tension and enhance your
    focus. Remind yourself that your entire
    future does not rest on one test and that you will learn
    from this experience regardless of how well you do on the exam.

  • Assess your stress level before you begin studying. If you are experiencing a high
    degree of stress you won't be able to study
    as effectively.

  • Remember, some anxiety or stress is
    normal and can actually enhance your performance!
