Finals Week Survival Guide!

Sleepy Study Cat

Check out the Final Exam Schedule so that you know when your exams will be!
Come to the Library for a break and for help!
Milne Library is open 24 hours during Final Exam days.  Check our Library Hours schedule.
Study and wellness tips:

1.  Study in chunks. Block off specific hours of your schedule to study for each test you have to take. A ten minute study break every few hours is also a good idea.

2.  Schedule in some exercise. There’s no better way to relieve stress.  Don’t plan on studying non-stop the whole week.

3.  Take advantage of study groups.  A group can motivate you to get started and discussing difficult concepts with each other can aid in understanding.

4.  Take advantage of review sessions.  Most professors will touch on certain topics more heavily than others in review sessions and this might give you a better idea of what will be on the exam.

5.  Take advantage of your professor’s office hours.  If you’re unsure about anything, touch base with your professor or TA.

6.   Make sure you have the materials you’ll need for the test the night before.  Bring a back-up pen or pencil.

7.   Get a good night’s rest  and have a good breakfast before your test.  If you follow tip #1, you won’t have to stay up all night cramming.

8.   Don’t wait until your class is about to begin to get a bluebook.  If you need a blue book, you can pick it up at the Library Service Desk for 15 cents.

9. Don’t psych yourself out.  You’ve studied, so don’t talk yourself into doing poorly.  Put yourself in confidence mode, visualize it all going right and think A+.
