We don’t have Library cats here, but we do have some tips to get you through exams.
1. Check out theFinal Exam Schedule so that you know when your exams will be and plan ahead so that you give yourself plenty of time to study for each of them.
2. 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.
3. Schedule in some exercise. There’s no better way to relieve stress. Don’t plan on studying non-stop the whole week.
4. Take advantage of study groups. A group can motivate you to get started and discussing difficult concepts with each other can aid in understanding.
5. 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.
6. Take advantage of your professor’s office hours. If you’re unsure about anything, touch base with your professor or TA.
7. Make sure you have the materials you’ll need for the test the night before. Bring a back-up pen or pencil.
8. 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.
9. 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.
10. 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+.

After the events in Charlottesville, Virginia, many of the faculty librarians are struck by the systemic failure of institutions to condemn white supremacist hate speech and fascism. Champions of ‘both sides’ represent a key point of rhetorical failure, as though it were possible to have a productive conversation with someone who believes you shouldn’t exist.
