Other Tips for Finals Week:

  • Whatever you do, DON’T stress. Stress can cause you to do poorly on your exams. Try some simple breathing exercises to keep your stress level down.
  • Create a dependable study group with classmates because sometimes its better to study in a group than alone.Image result for png tutoring
  • Try rewriting your notes over again in another notebook. This is a good way to re-teach yourself the material.
  • Get sleep! I know we all want to cram in all the information in one night but the best way to prepare for finals is getting all the rest you can have and learn the material with a clear head after a goodnight’s rest.

Good luck on finals everyone!
